Julie Verhoeven is primarily known for her work as a fashion illustrator and designer but her ever increasing, interdisciplinary practice, defiantly refuses to apply easy rules of separation, from installation to video and performance.Verhoeven’s formal training was in fashion design and she has collaborated with brands including H&M, Hogan, Peter Jensen, M.A.C, Melissa, Mulberry, Versace and Louis Vuitton. Additionally, Verhoeven headed her own fashion label, Gibo, presenting during London Fashion Week, with flagship stores in London and Milan.

Verhoeven has exhibited internationally since 2002, and most recently with solo shows at ICA, London and Hordaland Kunstsenter, Bergen (with Jimmy Merris) and group shows at Kunsthalle Bern and Migros Museum, Zurich. In the summer of 2015, Verhoeven was the subject of a television documentary, ‘The Art of the Joy of Sex’, aired on Sky Arts. In 2011, The Victoria & Albert Museum, London, acquired over 100 Verhoeven drawings for their prints and drawings archive and she was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal College of Art. Three monographs of her work are in print, with the most recent fanzine, ‘Gusset’, published by the ICA, London.
