Biography

Julien Marinetti is a pop art-influenced sculptor famous for his “Doggy Johns” sculptures: an ongoing series of French bulldogs cast in bronze and finished with industrial lacquer. Marinetti describes these sculptures as three-dimensional canvases or “support surfaces.” Some pieces are monochrome, while others feature collage or gestural paintings that reference current events or art-historical trends. The dogs, along with Marinetti’s similarly humorous skull and teddy bear series, share qualities with the works of Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst.
