Julio César Osorio
Being a finalist for the Newcomer category of the Global Arts Awards Dubai, last November for his mesmerising painting “Tree Of Life”, the last painting he produced in prison, and now listed as an artist in the International Auction house database, are the latest two achievements for Julio César Osorio, an artist who discovered his talent at the lowest point of his life. His story emphasises the importance of art, the power it has to heal and transform people’s lives.
Before that his passion for documentary photography inspired him to return to education at the age of 27 and then pursue a career in the industry.
Julio received a fine art scholarship through The Monument Trust. He has had several solo exhibitions in London as well as group ones.
As he continues to paint, the messages behind his work have evolved from nostalgic origins to more politically charged, evocative themes.
