Julian is a trans artist, illustrator, and writer who lives with his wife of many years in a faerie-cottage in the wild western woods of Montana, where he works, plays, has adventures with canine companions, and makes as much art as possible.
narrative art for the curious...
From a child who drew dinosaurs and unicorns in between reading every book in sight, especially if it had dragons, to an adult who… well, let’s be honest, still does all those things, if with a bit more accumulated finesse - artist Julian Keller-King has always sculpted fantastical inner worlds into existence using words, pencils, ink, paint, paper, and whatever else he can find. With a strong focus on the symbols and tropes found in myths and faerietales, Julian’s work celebrates the role of human storytelling and metaphor in carrying us beyond the bounds of our expectations and empowering us to redefine our experiences on our own terms.
