Moving Images


My name is Julien Posture, I’m an illustrator based in Montreal. I have BFA in printmaking as well as an M.Sc. in anthropology, with a focus on linguistics and semiotics. Both my artistic and research work deal with the ways images (and the way we look at them) convey meaning, but also shape society.

In addition to my work as an illustrator, I develop a theoritical work on visual culture and illustration from an anthropological perspective. I’m part of the ethical comitee of Illustration Québec and I occasionally write about illlustration here.
