Julian Dashper (1960-2009) is regarded as one of New Zealand’s most well known and highly respected contemporary artists. He has exhibited extensively throughout New Zealand and off shore in Europe, America and Australia.

Dashper went to secondary school in Wellington and gained a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Auckland in 1982. Dashper continued to live in Auckland but maintained a strong connection to Wellington through regular exhibitions at Hamish McKay Gallery. His work has also been exhibited in many Wellington galleries including Peter McLeavey Gallery, the Adam Art Gallery and City Gallery Wellington.

In 2001 Dashper was awarded a senior Fullbright fellowship and was the artist in residence at the Donald Judd Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas. This work, Untitled (Self portrait as Donald Judd) signals Dashper’s long-standing interest in the work of American minimalist artist Donald Judd.

Much of Dashper's work concerns the connections between abstract art and popular culture. He was particularly interested in the rise of modernism both in New Zealand and internationally.
