is illustrated by Jean Jullien this December
Kitsuné’s new music discovery and streaming service, Kitsuné Hot Stream, features the stellar artwork of Parisan graphic artist, Jean Jullien, this December.
Jean Jullien’s relationship with Maison Kitsuné began in September. The illustrator created posters for several events of the brand and also came to one of Kitsuné’s parisian shops to offer the clients the chance to have their own original portrait. The label thought very naturally of him for its latest project Kitsuné Hot Stream.
Hosted on YouTube and other platforms like Apple Music, Deezer and Spotify, Kitsuné Hot Stream combines music and a selection of other forms of art, showcasing a new generation of emerging talents. Always ahead of its time Kitsuné dares to go further down the innovation and musical curation path : every week Kitsuné Hot Stream will offer fresh musical discoveries highlighted by the works of a visual artist (an illustrator, a photographer, a graphic artist, or even a painter). Those works will be exposed at the Café Kitsuné, Boulevard Filles du Calvaire in Paris to create a complete environment from the virtual gallery to real time exhibition.
It is a new way to assert the independence of the label while Kitsuné continues to focus on its initial and pioneering message : mixing the worlds of music and design for a unique experience.
Following the French couple of illustrators Mrzyk & Moriceau, and south corean artist Moonassi, it is now Jean Jullien’s turn to illustrate the label’s last musical selection by bringing a breeze of fresh air and tenderness.
About Jean Jullien
Jean Jullien is a French graphic designer born the 14th of March 1983 currently living in London. He comes from Nantes and did a graphic design degree in Quimper before coming to London. He graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2008 and from the Royal College of Art in 2010.
His practice ranges from illustration to photography, video, costumes, installations, books, posters and clothing to create a coherent yet eclectic body of work.
His work, greatly influenced by cartoons, comics books and the mainstream culture of the 80’s, presents itself as an invitation, a space open to all. The relevance of his vision on the world surrounding us has landed him numerous works for the press (Télérama, The New York Times ou encore The Guardian).
