Julianknxx is a poet in search of vulnerability and vibes. Hailing from Sierra Leone via South London, the poet, filmmaker and visual artist has a profile on the rise—thanks to recent commissions by Southbank Centre, Roundhouse, and the ICA. He is inspired by Sierra Leonean traditions of oral storytelling and moves fluidly between the written word, music and visual art.
Julianknxx is also a budding arts curator, having founded Julianknxx and Friends, an intimate yet accessible evening of conversations, art installation and performances with the likes of Shingai, Caleb Femi, Tawiah, Kazvare Made it and Thabo.
Experienced across the literature and arts scenes, Julianknxx’s work has been featured at venues and on platforms including the Roundhouse, Jazz Café, 180 The Strand, Prada Mode and the BBC. His work has also been covered by Vogue (UK, and Japan), Nataal and gal-dem.
