Julia Trost Julia Trost is a contemporary artist from Germany, born in 1994. She started painting when she was 8 years old. After taking a break for 10 years, she finally found her passion for painting again. Now she is back with more energy and motivation than ever. During her creative break, she always felt like something in her life was missing and as she started painting again, she knew what it was. The feeling of finally being able to pick up where she left off 10 years ago is channeling an all-encompassing energy that she puts into all her paintings.
