James’ jumping off point is his vibrant and multi-layered editorial illustrations he produced for WIRED magazine. Covering topics ranging from virtual reality to new media remixes, Dawe looks to further challenge his image making process and digital experimentation. Large edition prints of the WIRED artwork will be on display during the show as well as newly created pieces.
An in-demand commercial artist and illustrator, James works predominantly in mixed media collage, digital manipulation and 3D experimentation. His dramatic compositions cascade across the page throwing up unexpected, often abstract “glitchy” imagery reflective of his all-embracing energy.
After an Art foundation at Central Saint Martins, James went on to study Illustration at the University of Brighton, graduating in 2006. Experience working with some of London’s top creative agencies followed as Dawe’s unique style of work developed and gained recognition.
His client list includes Nike, The Natural History Museum, Creative Review, Varoom magazine, the British Fashion Council and WIRED.
