About the Artist
Paul Julien Freed's body of work is a narrative through color and dynamism. It is an extension of his impactful history, both in a personal sense and by way of his professional background in film and photography. Paul's seemingly instinctive style of painting enables him to explore a perspective that flows naturally through his deep-rooted creative interdependence.
Paul's recent exhibition at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles is, in part, a display of his connection to the hotel itself. The show also holds an exceptional place in his artistic career, having begun several years ago after he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
Paul stated, "When I'm painting, I am in the moment, free of a particular outcome or being sick." He has also said that, "Memory can best be preserved through acceptance rather than suffering." And by this he means he will not be defined by any limitations or perceptions but rather by what he chooses to do in moving forward with life.
Paul Julien Freed has exhibited his work nationally and has been included in five shows in Los Angeles. In addition, his work has appeared on Showtime's I'm Dying Up Here and Hulu's Chance.
