Born and raised in Guiguinto Bulacan, Villarete's works are inspired by the vast arrays of flowers and plants that are around him.
He graduated from Bulacan State University with a degree in Industrial Engineering and incorporates the techniques he learned to create a style that is distinctly his own. The purpose of his work is to challenge its viewers on the perception of these living things we tend to overlook.
Living in a fast-paced world, we fail to notice the natural beauty that is abundant around us. Julius intends to remind his viewers that there is beauty and mystery all around us, and all we have to do is look.
