Julia Peintner graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2015 and has since been working as a printmaker and painter in London.
Printmaking, drawing and painting equally coexist in her practice. Her figurative images show universal experiences and symbolic motifs, often drawing from a mix of medical illustrations, everyday observations and surreal imagery, giving the work a sense of the mystical and dreamlike. The work depicts figures in moments of motion, characterised by strong, fluid silhouettes, capturing movement in a fixed yet explosive state.
She has exhibited in the UK and US as well as in Japan after being a resident at Studio Kura residency in 2015 and in 2017 with a focus on Japanese printmaking. Peintner has been working for Blackbird Editions and as Eileen Cooper's studio assistant since 2016.
