CHRISTINA JULSGAARD 1976

Christina Julsgaard chose very early on to pursue her dreams and make a living from her creativity.

 

Already at the age of 20, the designer dream had become a reality when Christina Julsgaard had begun working at a Danish design company and had opportunity to live out her dreams. She travelled around the world as a designer and buyer, and learned all about how to run a fashion business.

 

A few years later, she started her own minimalist fashion label YIIP Copenhagen, where she sold her clothing designs to 10 countries and had her own shop and gallery in Copenhagen from 2001-2007.

 

"I've always had a great desire to create and it's easy for me to visualise how ideas can become reality," tells Christina.

 

As her career took off in 2001, she began to paint and the painting turned out to be an essential, energising and infectious source for developing the ideas for her many designs.

 

She was inspired by fashion, art and especially human relationships, the latter becoming a greater interest as she travelled around the world. Therefore, art, design and culture have fused together to help create the setting for her unique universe of minimalistic and contrasting expressions.

 

In 2009, she chose to take a break from life as a self-employed fashion designer and explored new aspects of her identity. She was still driven to create and develop, but instead began to focus on the deeper human values ​​that art made it possible for her to express.

 

“The paintings are my emotional space, here I can link my experiences, feelings and thoughts together in my own particular abstract language,” states Christina.

 

Julsgaard has a significant artistic language, which in an abstract way portrays her emotions and moods, which the observers of her works are free to interpret.

 

“I love to hear people's experiences when they gaze at my paintings. Many find motifs that reflect their own lives and thoughts, which is very fascinating”.

 

Christina Julsgaard already has a long and interesting CV of exhibitions behind her. In 2011, she was among the 102 Danish artists chosen to decorate an elephant sculpture for the great cultural event, Elephant Parade, which adorned the streets of Copenhagen in aid of saving the Asian elephants.

She has also had an international solo exhibition at a gallery in Shanghai, China, which she now regularly collaborates with, a joint exhibition in Hong Kong, as well as an exhibition at a gallery in the Netherlands.

 

Today, she has held over 100 exhibitions.

 

"The paintings allow me to communicate with people on a different level, like a kind of visual music. I hope to make a difference and contribute positively to the world with what I create," says Christina Julsgaard.
