An Installation by Jean Jullien

The current hot spot for shoppers in Paris, Galeries Lafayette Champs Elysees recently installed a grandeur blue dog carrying it’s pet dog “monument” named “Le Doggy Bag” in the middle of the building’s open space area, standing 5 meters tall, by the infamous French graphic artist, Jean Jullien. The installation itself will come with a variety of merch that consists of textiles with OLOW and accessories with Case Studyo

Jean Jullien is a French graphic artist living and working in Paris. Originally from Nantes, Jean completed a graphic design degree in Quimper before moving to London. He has since graduated from Central Saint Martins (2008) and from the Royal College of Art (2010). Jean Jullien has always been much more than an illustrator. 


Jean has also published numerous books with acclaimed houses including Phaidon, Walker Books, Comme des Géants and Hato Press to name a few.  In 2016, he published his first monograph with teNeues.  In 2016, Jean launched Nounou with Jae Huh, a Korea-based label producing a wide range of items including clothing, graphic objects, rugs and dolls. 


One of his most popular installation that kicks off his career was a major solo exhibition entitled “The Aromatics” at the Chandran Gallery in San Francisco, California. Jullien unveil 35 paintings that have all been made at the beginning of this year. Portraying relaxing beach scenes, the vivid compositions of these pieces were originally inspired by the artist’s personal photographs and sketches of distinct moments. Inspired by memories from places he had been to over the years. “It’s also a work on discreet narratives and relatable moments. The people in the paintings are mostly faceless. To me, they are specific people who were there at the time, but to the viewer, it could be anyone.” said Jullien.

Le Doggy Bag installation is open for public viewing up until November 5th, 2019.

60 Av. des Champs-Élysées, 75008 Paris
