Art Madrid'23 – Christina Julsgaard
Christina Julsgaard was born in 1976 and has a background in fashion design. She established her own Danish clothing brand YIIP COPENHAGEN at the age of 24 (2001), and has kept the entrepreneurial spirit going throughout the years with art and design going hand in hand. In 2008 she had her first soloexhibition as an artist, where she decided to swift from the design world to the art world to pursue her love of painting. Julsgaard’s modern art works are inspired by her background in fashion, the love of colours, graphics and spiritual sense of expressions. Her style is therefore abstract, clean-cut and minimalistic but also organic, pulsating and energetic as she draws inspiration from the human mind and life’s experiences. Today, Christina Julsgaard’s works include larger paintings in acrylic on canvas and brass sculptures which are 3D representations of the shapes and lines found in her paintings.
