Julien Kolly

Founder

Born in Fribourg in 1979, Julien Kolly can be described as one of the pioneers of the street art culture in Switzerland. Director of the communication agency vingtneuf degres, he opens, in September 2006, his first gallery, GT29, in collaboration with the Nuithonie theater in Villars-sur-Glâne.

Two years later, he founded La Grille in Yverdon-les-Bains which, at a rate of one show per month, allowed him to build a network of national and international artists at the forefront of the graphic culture and the latest trends. Dare, Alëxone, Swet, Tilt, Flying Förtress, MadC, Smash137, Lenz, L’Atlas or Dave the Chimp are a few names that invaded the walls of the gallery.

Eager for new challenges, he has now decided to promote the graffiti and street art universe in Zurich, cosmopolitan city known for its international artistic influence.
