James Taylor has worked as a commercial artist for many years. He creates beautiful and intricate digital impressions for some of the world’s most iconic brands whilst crafting easily collectable art and sculpture for his own and the public’s enjoyment.

To James, the ‘texture’ of the art is as crucially important as the art itself and contributes to the ownership experience, with each limited edition piece being signed by the artist himself.

The way that James works to produce the end result can take many forms and usually involves various mediums. But typically, the initial concept will be a simple line drawing on whatever is to hand – a note pad, a beer mat or a even a food-stained napkin. Once the concept is approved, a more intricate version will be drafted by hand before the third stage: digital manipulation. But even this may not be the end of the process for James. For example, if the image in question is of a particular building, he may decide to carry out further research on its history or architecture. And if that throws up different or better artistic ideas, he may decide to incorporate them into the finished work. Or he may decide to reject the initial concept altogether and start again.

James believes that photography is incredibly meaningful for referencing subtle, and at times, overlooked details in structure or forms. Indeed, many site visits are often required before hidden ‘secrets’ such as the faint art deco banknote-like lines in the stunning Dartford Cinema image become apparent under certain light conditions.

James’s work is regularly exhibited from The Isle of Arran, London, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Beaulieu, Kas, Oslo, Monte Carlo to Sardinia.
