Julian Bailey is a prolific figurative artist, renowned for his oil paintings and drawings. On recently discovering the art of printmaking, he now produces lino cuts and dry point etchings. Julian's new prints, not only compliment his drawings and paintings beautifully; but show the discipline of constantly renewing his observation of the world around him. This process is creating an exciting burst of energy in Julian's new work. (go to www.julianbailey.co.uk to see a selection of Julian's paintings and drawings)
Julian's prints are in small edition (most are no more than 12) and are all signed and numbered. Some of Julian's editions are held exclusively by Originals Inprint. So if you haven't started already, this is a great opportunity to begin your Julian Bailey collection.
