Julia Pelzer

Illustrator

Julia Pelzer is an illustrator. After having graduated from arts school in her native Hamburg, one of her first assignments was for German VOGUE. In a short span of time, her work was found in international fashion and lifestyle publications. Her signature elegant, feminine and subtly expressive aesthetics come from a combination of hand-painted watercolor with visible brushstrokes and an uncanny eye for colour and minimalistic shapes characterised by fluid, expressive lines. She was influenced through Asian art through her father, a professor of Oriental Studies, and studied the technique of calligraphy, elements of which are to be found both in her illustrations and in typography. Freehanded work with watercolour, ink, brushes and quality handcrafted paper are her trademark and basis of all her artwork.

Pelzer’s works have been published in international editorial publications such as the Sunday Telegraph, Vogue, So Chic and Departures magazine. She has created illustrations for advertising clients such as Veuve Clicquot, Burberry, Meissner Porzellan, Swarovsky, Bottega Veneta, Harrods and Max Mara.
