Julie Galante is an American artist living and working in Munich, Germany. She grew up in several US states and spent most of her childhood in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She holds degrees in various subjects (some art-related, some not) from Brown University and Thunderbird School of Global Management.
Her passion for travel and experiencing new cultures has brought her to many cities and countries around the world, where she constantly finds new visual inspiration. Over the past ten years she lived in Phoenix, New York, Milan, and Zurich, before coming to Munich in 2008.
Julie’s current artistic focus is on interpreting scenes from various European cities. Munich features heavily in her current paintings, and Italy is a subject she revisits over and over. She also continues to explore the human face in her colorful and intense portraits.
