Julian Burgos was born in Pereira, Colombia. He lives and works in Paris. After spending his teenage years in the USA, he began his studies in fine arts in Montepllier (France) and continued in the Accademia di Belle Arti, Bologna (talia). In his work he develops a multitude of beings emerging from the light. Covered by a commedia dell'arte mask, or a conventional mask, living a horror story. This work finds its support not only on paper or linen, or its medium on the pastel, the crayon, the "mine de plomb", the oil but also in mural painting in the use of clay or chewing gum. His work was exhibited in France, England, Colombia.
