For over a decade James has evolved in the arts, collaborating with great thinkers and innovators, and perfecting his signature style. Although minimalistic, James' approach to art is well thought out and shows multiple perspectives depending on the audience viewing the pieces. The manipulation of photography used makes each piece hold an almost painterly quality that when printed blurs the lines between computer based art and hand-drawn. The typically centered black and white pieces have the ability to fit in to any atmosphere. The content of each piece can be personalized by the viewer seeing that James rarely defines for them, but allows them to determine what the work is saying. He believes that we all learn from each other's perspective, and would rather start conversation than be so point-blank.
James resigned from his position as a graphic designer for University of Michigan-Flint and in 2013 relocated to Brooklyn, New York where he now resides. In a short time he's had the opportunity to build with multiple artist, writers, and companies, one of the most prestigious being Jazz at Lincoln Center, who he continues to work with, creating everything from concert posters for some of the top jazz musicians in the world to trophies for high school students competing to fill those musicians shoes. New York not only allowed him these opportunities, it grew his curiosity of culture and made him evolve as a man and creative.
Recently, James held his second exhibition in New York since early 2014. The response was so great it naturally led to his hunger to show more often and on a larger scale. He's now working with a team and creating a plan to build relationships with more galleries, be seen by more art lovers, and create avenues to help his big ideas inspire the world.
