About The Artist

Julia Donnici is a self-taught, first generation Italian-Canadian artist based in Toronto. Italian culture stands as a pivotal influence in Julia’s work as she draws inspiration from European Renaissance & high fashion expressed through acrylic/oil mediums & high contrast canvases.

Julia started her career as an artist in 2019 and has since created commissions/ sold work internationally, illustrated a novel, had her work displayed in The Mac Miller Pop-Up Shop: Circles (NYC, LA, Pittsburg), as well as several local galleries held in the city of Toronto. In October of 2023, she had a solo exhibit titled Danger Hides in Beauty.

Julia studied oil painting and mastered classical techniques in the birthplace of The Renaissance – Florence, Italy. Julia graduated in Toronto earning her Bachelor’s in the Fine Arts, and is now currently earning her second Bachelor’s in Fashion to explore her interest in the industry & discover new avenues of expression.
