Artist Bio

James expresses his surroundings and experiences in line works. He spontaneously and honestly portrays what he sees, capturing and freezing that moment effusively and injecting his humor in it.. '720Days in Japan' is based on a series of episodes and experiences he encountered during his 2-years sojourn in Japan, from 2005 to 2007. Looking at Japan from an outsider perspective and capturing it through his expressive approach of line works, James transforms supposedly mundane moments to reveal a quirky side of Japan. A A self taught artist, James’ pieces are done mainly in the medium of ink and pen, enabling him to spontaneously capture fleeting images through his line drawings. The line works are executed such that the intimacy of the lines is hinted at, not wholly conveyed.
From sipping coffee at Harajuku to the train otaku, James communicates Japan and his perceptions to the audiences through his singular approach.
