James Jean

James Jean is a multidisciplinary visual artist whose works explore imagination and reality through narrative-driven, layered compositions. His expressionistic, painterly approach to mark-making blends figuration with abstraction in works that are at once technically precise and gestural. His artistic practice focuses mainly on painting and drawing, while also embraces other media including sculpture, installation, and video. Fusing aspects of history, tradition, literature, nature, and personal experience, Jean’s dream-like and at times disorienting visual vocabulary draws upon art historical antecedents ranging from Baroque painting to Japanese woodblock prints and Chinese silk scroll paintings. 

Jean’s work has been featured in various solo exhibitions including Jonathan LeVine, New York (2009); Martha Otero, Los Angeles (2010); Tilton Gallery, New York (2013), and Kaikai Kiki Gallery, Tokyo (2018), among others. In 2016, his work was included in the group exhibition Juxtapoz x Superflat, organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Takashi Murakami and Evan Pricco. Eternal Journey, a major retrospective of his work, was hosted by Lotte Museum of Art in Seoul in 2019. 

Jean lives and works in Los Angeles.
