JULIE GALANTE is an American artist living and working in Munich, Germany. She grew up in several U.S. states and spent most of her childhood in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She holds degrees in various subjects from Brown University and Thunderbird School of Global Management.

Her passion for travel and experiencing new cultures has brought her to many cities and countries around the world, where she constantly finds new visual inspiration. Over the past ten years she lived in Phoenix, New York, Milan, and Zurich, before coming to Munich in 2008.

Julie’s current artistic focus is on interpreting the people and places of Munich. Her cityscapes explore popular and not-so-popular corners of the urban landscape; her latest portrait series depicts women wearing dirndls, modern versions of traditional Bavarian dresses.
