Fine Arts presents visiting artist Julien Ceccaldi, French Canadian artist from Montreal. Born in Canada in 1987, he currently works with many mediums like drawing, painting, and installations.  He completed his BFA at Concordia University in 2009, and since then has shown his work around the world, including Mathew Gallery in Berlin, Bodega Gallery in Philadelphia, FOFA Gallery in Montreal, and Redbird Gallery in Montreal.  He also produces unique pieces painting on garments and accessories which are hand-painted and presented as works of mass production. The narratives portrayed on the clothes and in his comics are centered on muscular manga heroines attempting to create the facade of thriving, desirable selves.
