Julie Beloussow is a visual artist based in Los Angeles, CA. Her current work explores themes of perception, neurodiversity, and identity.
Her contemporary, psychedelic artwork is primarily created with acrylic paint and inks. Fasciation, a genetic mutation that alters the appearance of plants, is a common motif in her work as a mirror to the abnormality of neurodivergence.
Driven by her own story of living with conditions such as ADHD and Autism, her recent body of work examines the ambiguity between disorder and self-identity. Through strange and swirling distortions, she draws a parallel to the psychedelic experience - as the core of both illuminate a flexible reality formed from the mind.
Beloussow earned her BFA in Drawing & Painting in 2022 from California State University Long Beach.
Her work has been exhibited at a number of art & music festivals, including Lucidity and Gem & Jam 2023, and recently included in Brea Gallery's annual juried show Made in California.
