Hello !

My name is Julien Posture, I’m an illustrator and researcher based in Montreal. I like to make simple, colourful and meaningful images that are quietly queering up representations.
I’m also a researcher, studying and writing about visual culture,
mostly within the creative industry, and usually with a critical perspective. I like tallking about anthropology, semiotics and visual culture.
