Julien Pacaud renders surreal collages that entice and mystify viewers. He compiles the works using several textures, borrowing motifs from several eras. Pacaud favors geometric shapes popular in the 80s, combining them with futuristic star-speckled textures and super nova glimpses. To tie together the juxtaposing landscapes, the artist pastes on images of retro 1940s to 1960s cultural characters. From Beatlemaniacs, to housewives and boy choirs, Pacaud exploits them all to surrealist tensions.

Julien Pacaud is a French artist, based in Le Mans, France. He is inspired by hypnotism, astrophysics and the snooker. His ultimate drive and ambition is to explore his passion for time travel. While Pacaud may be waiting to jump a worm hole, his work is enough to shoot audiences into the alternate universe of choice.
