Julian 'Julinu' Mallia

Julian ‘Julinu’ Mallia is a multidisciplinary Maltese visual artist specialising in concept-driven work.

Originally a psychology graduate, he now creates thought-provoking imagery within traditional fine-art and digital illustration contexts.

Mallia’s most representative visual work is typically idea-driven, characterised by atmospheric and surreal imagery and often laced with dry humour. He juggles his practice between visual art and drumming – hinting at his unconventional approach to creative expression.

Julian’s visual art work has been recognised in numerous international platforms and has been exhibited in Malta, UK, Belgium, USA and South Korea. Notable recognition includes being awarded at the AOI World Illustration Awards (UK) (2016), recognition as “L-Artist tas-Sena” (Artist of the Year) at “Il-Premju ghall-Arti 2020” (Malta Arts Awards) and inclusion in the publication “The Power and Influence of Illustration” (published by Bloomsbury UK in 2019).

Julian currently lives and works in Malta.
