Julian Lombardi is a remarkable painter with an unusual story. Julian spent the early part of his professional career as CPA and Senior Finance Manager, during this time he was involved in a life changing sports related accident. While in recovery Julian found inspiration and healing by re discovering his love for the arts.
Shortly after his recovery, while working a full time job, Julian attended night school studying drawing and painting at Santa Ana College, CA. During that time, he developed a connection with the LA art community, found a mentor and an artistic voice that he now uses to express himself visually. Today Julian is a visual artist living and working in Southern California. We feel privileged to know such a talented artist and human with a unique perspective on social standards that aren’t always represented in the artists community.
Julian was our resident artist during the month of June, 2018. While in New York he created an impressive body of work that we’re excited to share with you. As an artist resident he also got the opportunity to experience New York’s cultural scene; everything from museums, openings, and culinary experiences that are unique to the city.
