Julian Perry’s work responds to humanity’s complex relationship with the landscape: sheds demolished to make way for the London 2012 Olympics, cliffs collapsing and rising sea levels are subjects of past shows.

In 2017, Perry had a major solo show at Gainsborough’s house, Suffolk, garnering national media coverage. Further solo shows include: Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery; London Guildhall Art Gallery; Wysing Arts, Cambridgeshire; and seven solo shows at Austin Desmond Fine Art, London.

Perry has paintings in numerous public collections including The Museum of London and HRH the Prince of Wales collection. He has won major British Council and Arts Council awards and has an almost continuous exhibition commitment both nationally and internationally. In 2015 his work on costal erosion featured in La Biennale di Venezia and he was awarded an Arts Council England Studio Bursary.
