Julien Creuzet was born in the Paris banlieue and grew up in Martinique.
He attended the Post-Diplôme course at the Lyon Academy of Fine Arts and Le Fresnoy (the National Studio for Contemporary Arts).
A visual artist and poet, Creuzet actively intertwines these practices through sculpture, installation and textual intervention that frequently address his own diasporic experience. Inspired by the poetic and philosophical reflections of Aimé Césaire and Édouard Glissant on creolization and migration, Creuzet’s work focuses on the troubled intersection of the history of Martinique and the events of European modernity.
Creuzet has recently had solo exhibitions at the Fonds Régional d’Art Contemporain Basse Normandie in Caen, 2015; the Juvisy-sur-Orge Contemporary Art Centre, Galerie Doyang Lee in Paris, 2013, and the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation in Turin, 2012.
He recently participated in the Festival Hors Piste at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2017; the 12ème Biennale de l’Art Contemporain Africain de Dakar, Sénégal, 2016; the second Kampala Art Biennale, Uganda, and the 30th International Artists Studio Program Exhibition at Fonds Régionaux d’Art Contemporain Pays de la Loire. He participated in the 14th Lyon Biennale, and had a solo show at Sketch Gallery in Bogotá, Colombia in November 2017.
