James Young Art
James Young Art is Inspired by the sea and shorelines of North Devon, all of James’ pictures begin as detailed pencil drawings. These drawings are then transferred onto a variety of papers and worked on using a range of materials. All completed workings are then layered together to create a final print. This process allows James to consider each aspect of a composition individually, be it colour and shade, or midtones and highlights, and to fully explore the interplay of light in his pictures. This approach brings together the simple art of drawing and combines it with technology to produce very accurate replicas of the image.
James is busy with commissions, such as this amazing cat Mable. When he is not working on commissions or wanting to take a break he often takes time out to undertake some studio practice. Work such as painting fellow artist Derrick Miller inspired by a Photograph produced by Shena Ruth Photography.
A graduate of Cardiff School of Art and Design with a BA (Hons) in Art and Aesthetics, James is now working and exhibiting in Devon.
