About Alan

Alan Tod is the artistic performance made by Julien Isoré in order to develop the concept of forest-art.

Born in 1977, Julien Isoré began painting at the age of 10 and became interested in biology and art history. At 24, after a master's degree in public law and a post-diploma in comparative intellectual property, Julien works for French national television in the field of entertainment as an artistic collaborator. At 28, he opened his first painting studio in Paris and developed his Prussian blue oil technique. He innovates on abstraction with the painting of imbalance. In 2007 he launched his first Total-Art work: the international advertising campaign for love (LOVE: artforlove.fr).

In 2007, Julien joined the C.i.e.b.a. (School of Fine Arts of Lisbon) with its project "Comparative LAB" (https://dessinisore.blogspot.com/) in collaboration with the School of Medicine of Lisbon and the School of Sociology of the Imaginary of the University of La Sorbonne. It produces and organizes international exhibitions, collective performances, published articles and festivals on the theme of the collective imagination and its relationship with art. He is particularly interested in art-science and the process of building new cultures. In 2014 he launched his project “Alan Tod, the forest artist” and developed the concept of forest-art (www.alantod.com).

In 2017, he began a collaboration with Marta de Menezes (Portugal) and founded the forest Embassy with Alex Romania (USA): a network of artists helping to create works of art made from the forest. He exhibits in the United States, Mexico and Europe. In 2021, he produced his first two works made of forest, "New fountain" in New York State in the United States, and "4 linhas para um sonhos" in the Alentejo region in Portugal.
