About the artist

Julian Palma (he/him)
IG: @julianpalmalu
Montreal, QC

We asked Julian to tell us about his design, and share what Pride means to him:

“The duffle’s design is a gesture of spontaneity, freedom, flow, fun and play of shape and colour. I am always inspired by the organic forms of nature and for the design, I decided to compose intuitively with shapes cut out on paper.”

“Pride is a strength that allows us to move forward with our heads held high. It’s self-recognition, self-love and for others, it is confidence in freedom.”

Julian is a multidisciplinary artist working as a muralist, illustrator, animator and curator.

You can see Julian’s finished design in-person at MEC Montreal (until June 30).
