Create or Die Spotlight: James Jean
About 16 months ago I came across a little art store that was closing down. I rummaged through a big box full of random offcuts and discarded prints. Everything in the box was $2 or less.
I came across these really dark, surreal prints and fell in love. My friend and I bought all of them. They were quite distinctly by the same artist, but I never really knew who it was until this afternoon.
The guys from Semi-Permanent posted something about an artist called James Jean and the image caught my eye immediately.
I went over to James Jean’s facebook page and scrolled down, spazzing out over the imagery and then came across a familiar piece. The girl with the maze!
I’ve had that image on my wall for over a year now – it was one of the prints I purchased for less than $2 at the little art store that was closing down. It’s moved houses with me and has held a cherished place in both houses.
I love these moments when the universe collides. Thanks James Jean!
