    Jean Jullien: La Plage

Exhibition: Jean Jullien gives us a saucy look at seaside antics in his new show La Plage

Posted by Liv Siddall,

The sun’s gone, the summer’s over, get over it. Before everyone starts morosely washing the chlorine out of their swimsuits and chucking their flower headbands in the recycling for another year, perhaps check out this new show from Jean Jullien. In his typical style of being witty without being overly cynical, Jean has created a new collection of simplistic images illustrating humans struggling with life on the beach. If you know the feeling when you’re sunburnt, you feel like a beached whale, there’s sand in your hotdog and you’re perving at the opposite sex through the shadows of your cheap sunglasses, then this is for you. Jean, you’ve done it again.

La Plage is on show at London’s Beach Gallery until September 29. If you can’t make it along, his prints are on sale here.
