It all started in January 2019. Belgian artist Jules Atarax began painting in a very raw and colorful field. Since then, he has been experimenting and placing new aesthetic discoveries on each canvas. His creations sold all over the world have earned him international recognition. Today, he works mainly on free figuration and abstraction. This official page aims to show his work and to offer some of his works for sale, both literary and pictorial.
Jules Atarax, raw artist
Jules Atarax is a Belgian painting artist born in 1985. Everything and Nothing predestined the artist to painting. Coming from the depths of Wallonia, he received an education unlike what he was intimately made of: creation and thought. We could see in him a modern Dante catapulted into the second millennium. After years of writing practice, he decided in 2019 to take up painting.
Julien Montironi also known as Belgian artist Jules Atarax
Van Gogh said that it takes a thousand canvases and ten years to become a good painter, Jules Atarax is well aware that he has to work even more. But his leg is already well established and we can recognize his style quite easily.
A raw painting devoted Belgian artist
This earned him some recognition and allowed him to sell some paintings around the world. His approach and technique places him in the middle of the Soutine-Basquiat-Condo triangle, right in the middle of neo-expressionism.
To be or not to be a Belgian raw artist
His painting gives off a lot of force by the colors used but also by the angry gesture and the few words used here and there. He has especially devoted himself to the composition of so-called “hallucinated” portraits which reveal what is hidden behind the human mask.
