Based in Vancouver, James was born and raised in Madrid, Spain. He spent the last few years living in Central America which inspired him to explore the relationship between figurative sensibilities and human portraits. He combines the influence of fashion photography, iconic imagery and urban art with more traditional painting techniques and works predominantly in acrylic and spray paint.
“The human face is an infinity of feelings and expressions; it is the way the soul expresses itself. I always have been fascinated by the essential unreality of the human being”
