Trevelyan was the only child to survive to adulthood of Robert Calverley Trevelyan and his wife Elizabeth van der Hoeven, his grandfather was the liberal politician Sir George Trevelyan, 2nd Baronet, his uncle the historian George Macaulay Trevelyan. Julian Trevelyan was educated at Bedales School and Trinity College, where he read English Literature, he moved to Paris to become an artist, enrolling at Atelier Dix-Sept, Stanley William Hayter's engraving school, where he learned etching. He worked alongside artists including Oskar Kokoschka, Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso. In 1935, Trevelyan bought Durham Wharf, beside the River Thames in London; this became his home and studio for the rest of his life and was a source of artistic inspiration to him. He became a confirmed Surrealist and exhibited at the International Surrealist Exhibition, held at the New Burlington Galleries in London. From 1950 to 1955, Trevelyan taught history of etching at the Chelsea School of Art.
From 1955–63, Trevelyan worked at the Royal College of Art and became Head of the Etching Department.

By 1942, they were able to deceive the German Afrika Korps, creating a dummy army which tied down German forces, while real tanks were concealed or disguised as trucks and other equipment.
