Bio / CV
Julian Wolkenstein is a multimedia artist based in Sydney. His practice draws inspiration from a range of divergent interests and abilities that overlap in the consideration of the ongoing role and efforts of human mediation, of both the material world and that of the ethereal.
Underpinning this is an effort to keep in mind a position of the playful and the poetic.
Applying a colourful conceptual visual style, he uses an expanded range of image making encompassing:
Commercially, he has been recognised with Cannes Gold Lions, D&AD’s, One Show Golds, in Creative Review, The Association Of Photographers (UK) and Communication Arts Photography Annuals. He has been interviewed live by NBC New York’s Today Show, and his images have appeared on BBC One’s The Graham Norton Show. He has worked with agencies including ( in various countries ) BBH, BBDO, DDB, Fallon, The Monkeys, Saatchi, McCann, Publicis, TBWA,Y&R, Leo Burnetts.
