Julia Peintner graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2015 and has since been working as a printmaker and painter in London. Drawing, painting and printmaking coexist in her practice. She works from imagination and sourced image material and analog photos. Her figurative images reference magic realism and show universal experiences and symbolic motifs. The subject matter is the figure in contemporary everyday life as seen through a mythological lens, giving the work a sense of the surreal and mystical. Peintner’s work explores various themes, such as the figure in nature and the elements, the female body and figure in transformation, the ambivalence and of life in a city and identity in flux, dreams and the visible and invisible to the eye.
Central Saint Martins, 2012-2015
She has exhibited in the UK and US as well as in Japan after being a resident at Studio Kura residency in 2015 and in 2017 with a focus on Japanese printmaking. Peintner has been working for Blackbird Editions and as Eileen Cooper's studio assistant since 2016.
