This August, CreativeMornings/Ottawa is extremely excited to be hosting a talk with local esteemed artist and tattooist Julian Garner of Five Cents. Julian's impressive work has long blurred any distinction between art and tattoo, and his rich visuals can even be seen on the walls of the brand new Union 613 Restaurant. An Ottawa local through and through, Julian has seen this city and its neighbourhoods grow, evolve, and redefine themselves. Currently operating out of his studio/gallery in Hintonburg on Parkdale, Julian is sure to share a strong opinion on arts, and creativity in the city from his unique perspective.

Julian Garner's career has followed a unique trajectory, which has played a significant role in the impressive work he produces today, mostly out of his shop and gallery space on Parkdale Avenue. Having originally worked as an artist and animator for several studios, Julian became disillusioned by the influence that non-creatives had on creative decisions. Blessed with incredible talents, Julian brought his perspective and skills to the world of tattoo, when a friend offered him an opportunity to try it out. Now, a notable and acclaimed figure in Ottawa's art scene, he creates visually stunning and rich pieces of art on many canvasses, whether it be the human body, paintings, or murals. His mentality is influenced by his experience as a skateboarder, and his work embodies the fearless and bold mindset that permeates skate culture. Known for his striking imagery, and masterful use of colour and shade, he is also known for his strong opinions on art, and creative communities. Not one to shy away from controversy, Julian is primed to deliver an informative, inspiration, and thought-provoking talk at CreativeMornings.

This month’s event will be hosted by the brand new, and stunningly gorgeous 8 Locks' Flat located on Colonel By Drive, right by the Somerset pedestrian foot bridge.  8 Locks' offers a diverse menu populated with local fare, while sharing a magnificent view of the Rideau Canal and the city.


In this write-up, Apt 613 ponders whether 8 Locks is the best new patio in the city, and in our eyes, it's no contest. Owner Colin Goodfellow is driven to create an environment and venue like none-other in the city, all the while offering a platform for Ottawa's creative community to thrive.
