JAMES JEAN, YOU'RE THE ARTIST I WANT TO BE.

IF YOU'RE IN TOWN, CHECK OUT JAMES JEAN IN HIS SOLO SHOW AT THE JONATHAN LEVINE GALLERY IN NYC FROM JAN. 10- FEB-7.
Jean is an artist based in Los Angeles, California. He was educated at the School of Visual Arts in New York, and lived in Manhattan and Brooklyn before moving to Los Angeles in 2003. In a ceaseless torrent of images, his finely wrought and narrative-driven work has captured the attention of a world-wide audience and the admiration of other artists, designers, and filmmakers. Renowned for his draftsmanship, imagination, and ability to span the commercial and fine art worlds, Jean has created a deeply involved body of work that has been widely featured in print, fabric, large-scale installations, and animation.
YOU CAN HELP BUT RESPECT AN ARTIST WHO IS SUCCESSFUL IN BOTH THE FINE ART AND COMMERCIAL REALMS, KUDOS. CHECK A SELECTION OF JEAN'S ILLUSTRATIONS AND PAINTINGS BELOW.
