Born in Paris
Paper Art & Textile Design
Born in a household of artists, Julie Yülle perpetuated family tradition by studying drawing and going to the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs in Paris (ENSAD), where she focused on screen printing and the printed image. The immediate pleasures of color and texture steered her towards the universe of textile. Her taste for a global aesthetic, one that incorporates daily life and it’s environment, led her to try her hand at everything: walls, furniture, clothing, objects… With her off-beat vision, she reinterpreted luxurious decorative objects that she dreamt of having at home. Among other projects, Julie Yülle created textile vases which, once she found a way of making them stand to accommodate fresh flowers, became the crowning pieces of her production, immediately lauded by the press and decoration professionals. She then embarked on a long marathon of designer exhibitions and shows before codirecting a studio/boutique called “Les Malfaitrices” (“The Wrongdoers”) in the Bastille neighborhood. In a studio located in Paris’ XXth district, Julie Yülle now works on complete series that begin with drawing, painting and paper cutting, and culminate in designer objects, textile or paper prints of her patterns. Her collections are displayed in specialized boutiques, at exhibitions and on her website.
