Jean Jullien is a French graffiti artist who currently resides in London. In 2008, Jean graduated from Saint Martins, and in 2010 he graduated from the Royal College of Art adding to the degree he got from Quimper.

Jullien recently presented his first large-scale exhibition of sculptures titled Flat Out. The exhibition was hosted by The WATT Event Space in Ghent, Belgium and presented by DIFT Gallery. In this exhibition, Jullien features a series of eight life-size steel sculptures imitating paper cutouts. These images take on a flat-out, elongated movement of body parts in idol positions.

Jullien explores through these sculptures a theme that is existent in all humans at one point or the other, Jullien explores the theme of Laziness.

Using these bent sheets carved out in human-like lazy positions, Jullien relays this theme; he relays ways in which laziness subdues us as humans in whatever way we relate to it, be it consciously or unconsciously. Jullian rises this ignored narrative from a place or dormancy and puts it out in our face.
