Julian Salaud is an artist working in Orléans. His work is exquisite combining taxidermy and beaded strings and sequins and threads that envelop the form in a "constellation". He calls his pieces Stellar Animals. Not only does he make incredible sculptures but he draws and has begun exploring his images in etching as well. Have a look at his website for more of his work or follow his blog to see what he's currently up to. Note that both his blog and website are in French. The gallery currently representing Julien is Suzanne Tarasieve
