James Jean is a renowned Taiwanese-American artist who has produced work for big-name clients such as DC Comics, Prada, and ESPN. In 2008, he retired from illustration to focus on painting. His style is chaotic, flowing, psychedelic, and eclectic, bearing artistic influences from “Chinese scroll paintings, Japanese woodblock prints, and Renaissance portraiture.” Despite this range of genre experimentation and his ever-evolving color palette, Jean’s art remains brilliantly cohesive, commanding our attention through dynamic compositions. The universal worlds he presents to us are vast in their energies and subject matter, ranging from full-bodied eroticism to moments of dark introspection.
