Julius Dizon-Cruz Bautista (b. 1987, Manila, Philippines) is a Chicago based visual artist and USMC veteran specializing in mixed-media portraiture and figure painting. Inspired by mixed media films of the 90’s, such as Cool World and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Julius produces a signature anesthetic informed as much by dreams as it is by reality. Infusing traditional styles of realism with contemporary elements of pop culture and urban art, he crafts an eclectic style designed to stimulate the imagination.
