I, Julia Bäck, am born in Finland in the middle of the 90s and am currently studying architecture in Scotland. By Julia Bäck is everything art related of mines, founded in 2015 when my artwork started hanging on walls that were not my parents. Then nineteen years old, I was drawing a poster to a friend of mine. She wanted a painting her two hometowns. The poster was 50 x 70 cm big – because that was how big her frame was.
As it usually goes, one thing leads to another. Media found the framed poster on my friend’s wall and when interior company Aveo laid their eyes on it, it was only a matter of minutes until a great collaboration was started. A few months later I was holding the first city poster – 50 x 70 cm – in my own hands. With no reason to stop two posters became three, five and now eighth posters with more products to come.
”I knew this was gonna happen!”, said my friend, and looked up at her poster, the first one done By Julia Bäck.
By Julia Bäck is unique. No lines are completely straight. The letters can be found on papers in my childhood home, drawn one by one. Everything is done from scratch, carefully and with high standard. Personal and true.
