Biography

         Julian Baslyk was born and raised in Montreal. He began to create abstract, colorful artworks at a young age. He has studied at numerous institutions including Dawson college fine arts, painting and drawing at Concordia University and painting at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, however, Julian considers himself to be mostly self-taught. He started exhibiting in 2009 where he had his first solo show at Gallery Luz which included 9 intaglio mono prints from his Colored Lines series. He became a member of the Montreal Art Center in 2012 where he participated in many group shows, and had a multi-disciplinary solo show in 2012 called Harmonious Pallets, The Transition of Colour. This exhibition featured many paintings, drawings and intaglio prints. Julian has also had 3 solo shows at cafes, his first in 2010 at Shaika Cafe in N.D.G, Montreal, and his 2nd and 3rd at Chez Freds in 2014 and 2015. He exhibited in September 2014 at the Montreal Art Center, which was called Celestial Movements and was entirely focused on abstract landscapes paintings from 2013 and 2014 where there were 18 paintings on display.  Julian has so far had 2 publications, first being in the 2013 version of State of the Art - Artist book, and in 2014 some of his works were published in the Hidden Treasure Art Magazine. Julian considers both his painting and drawings to be a display of patience, and both to be very separate processes. His more recent solo show was 'Harmonious Junctions' at Matahari loft featured 22 paintings and 2 prints. He paints or draws on a daily basis.
