Julian Feeld

was born in Montevideo, Uruguay.

He grew up traveling non-stop. By the age of 17 he had lived in Switzerland, France, New Jersey, Venezuela, and Brazil. As a teenager in Sao Paulo he played techno at legendary underground club A LOCA, where he fell in love with the night and its infinite corridors. After studying Film at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, he immediately moved to Paris, where he founded the deBonton music label, infamous for its nude happenings (inside the fountain of the Place de la Concorde, in the Paris metro, etc.) and pushing a particular brand of art-electro-pop (Sydney Valette, Thieves Like Us). As a DJ, Julian played all over Paris and was a resident at the Social Club and La Java.

His work as the visual artist behind deBonton garnered him the attention of the press (Tsugi, Magic RPM, Télérama, Paris Dernière Brain Magazine) and he was featured on the Technikart Magazine Powerlist (100 most influential people under 40) for two years in a row. He created installation pieces for the Basque regional government, performed stand-up comedy at the Theatre du Gymnase, and wrote his first novel, Even the Red Heron (a visceral portrait of a psychologically dysfunctional family living in Venezuela before its financial collapse). In 2014 the novel was launched in Brooklyn, London, and Los Angeles through an illegal street art campaign.
