Melbourne Arts Club was created with the idea that we wanted to create a space to everyone.
Then we realised that most people are assholes.
So we decided to create a space for nice people, making cool shit.
Many Years ago, J discovered her early childhood was missing from the family photo albums. The Parental unit informed her that film became prohibitively expensive, so photography was a luxury to be foregone.
J's attraction to photography increased when she saw the power those lost years had, fostering her fancy for photography.
J's love for photography and art become more and more apparent in every place she travelled to, seeking out the different galleries and absorbing the culture. With an extreme hate for organised tours, J learned that this was an insightful way to learn about a place and its people and pay respect to the artists and their talents.
Living back in Melbourne and working as a professional photographer, J realised that while there are lifestyle publications there isn't one just for art, art the friendly way and with the help of a friend started Melbourne Arts Club.
Art history, psychology, fine arts, sociology and taking a year off Uni to fuck about sums up this writer/semi-photographer/hustler to Melbourne Arts Club.
Julia likes most things hipsters like. And most things they don't like. She is by no means a slave to her surroundings but certainly a product of her environment.
Julia likes to connect with people. She likes to sit down and talk about the woes of everyday life and the importance of not wasting food. Art however, is her one true love.
People and the arts have found their way into her seemingly directionless life and have manifested themselves as Melbourne Arts Club.
