A native of France, Julien Raffin (1985) has been living and working for the past eight years in Asia. Currently based in Hong Kong working for a multinational corporation, he has been pursuing his passion for art as a form of self-expression on the side, almost secretly, despite having had no training in the field. He began studying photography around ten years ago in a bid to capture his surroundings while living abroad. He later refined his interest for visual creation through the medium of collage. His work with the latter technique has been exploring a deeply-set interest in understanding the iconic status of people and events that have helped shape the current era. Reflecting a diversity of influences in terms of both concept and composition, his collage works offer a poetic array of still, yet dynamic, narrative moments capable of instantly conveying historical context but also emotion and a sense of playful wonderment. “Disconnected” is the first major exhibition featuring his work.
