Jean Jullien was born in Cholet on March 14th, 1983, and grew up in Nantes. His mother was an architect and scenographer. Having failed to enter the “Beaux-Arts” art school, he took a BTS certificate (HND) in visual communication at the “Lycée des métiers Le Paraclet” secondary school in Quimper, where he was student of Fañch Le Henaff before continuing his studies at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and at the Royal College of Art in London, where he still lives.
In 2012, “Le Voyage à Nantes” entrusted him with the organization of the “Le Nid” bar-artwork located at the top of the Bretagne Tower in Nantes. In 2013, after exhibiting at the Kemistry Gallery in London, he exhibited in two galleries in Paris with his series ''Allô ?'', that received good reviews. In 2015, he exhibited again in Paris in the galleries “L'Imprimerie” and “Colette”. During the same year, Jean Jullien was introduced by the magazine “M, le magazine du Monde”, as an "Internationally renowned French illustrator on the international graphic art scene.''
In January 2015, after the terrorist attack against Charlie Hebdo, he expressed himself through an illustration representing a machine gun opposing a pencil and then, following the terrorist attacks of November 13th, 2015 in France, he created the “Peace for Paris” symbol. This illustration is a variation of the Peace and love symbol modified to integrate the Eiffel Tower. The image quickly spread online and has been used worldwide for messages of solidarity and peace against terrorism.
He holds a poster exhibition (named ''Recyclage'', meaning recycling) from July 1st to August 28th, 2016 in Nantes. About sixty works were exhibited on various road signs and at bus stops. Télérama magazine says that Jean Jullien ‘’casts a sharp and tender glance on our contemporary world, [...] goes straight to the point. A few ink strokes with a brush, flat colours appended to the graphic palette, humour, and there we have a French Rooster wearing a Made in China label, the Statue of Liberty with a mobile phone, or a young woman riding a training bike with a child on the luggage rack.’’
He designed the poster for the “Jazz sous les pommiers” festival in 2017. In the same year, he illustrated an article on television series written by Cécile Mury for Télérama. He then organised an exhibition in Bangkok, while still working in advertising and decorating Korean clothes.
