Julian Cox is a Bristol-based artist who has been exhibiting and selling work since 1985. He specialises in ink drawings and sculpture. In 2006 he was elected to the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
Following an Art Foundation Year in Bristol, he studied Sculpture Restoration for three years at Roger de Grey’s (P.P.R.A.), The City and Guilds of London Art School. Practical aspects of this course, which included a period of study in northern Italy, emphasized drawing, modelling, wood and stone carving, letter cutting, gilding and conservation/restoration techniques.
After Art School, he was employed by the international fine art restorers, Plowden and Smith Ltd, in London, where he mainly worked on the restoration of wood and stone sculpture. Pieces ranged from Ancient Egyptian to Contemporary, included sculptures by Moore, Rodin and Archipenko. He also worked on the mounting and preparation for such shows as the Gothic exhibition, ‘The Age of Chivalry’ at the Royal Academy. Other clients included the British Museum, the V&A, Sotheby’s and Christies.
In 1988-89 he did a Post Graduate Teaching Certificate at The University of London, Goldsmiths’ College, following which he taught Art and Design & Technology at secondary school level.
Julian has sold work through a range of galleries across the U.K. and his work has been included in the C20th Art & Design Fair, 20/21 British Art Fair, Affordable Art Fairs, Olympia Shows and the R.W.A. Works have also been sold at auction. In 2010 he completed an exterior mural, consisting of four large panels, on Park Street, Bristol.
