About the artwork 

To coincide with Jamian Juliano-Villani’s first institutional exhibition outside the US, The World’s Greatest Planet on Earth held at Studio Voltaire, we are pleased to present a new limited edition print by the artist.

Jamian Juliano-Villani’s works are composed using an atlas of thousands of appropriated images, personal photographs, and reproductions of existing artworks. This imagery is painted, repainted, and edited directly on the canvas; ‘a poor man’s Photoshop,’ or an almost masochistically longhand form of collage that is at odds with the speed at which we consume images today. The resulting works are anxiety filled images that are simultaneously prosaic and surreal.
