About

James Brown.
Los Angeles, 1951 – Merida 2020

James Brown was born in October the 26th, 1951 in Los Angeles, CA. He is an American artist known for his semi-figurative paintings and his works are characterized by the ingenuous quality of a child’s drawing. He attended the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris during the late 1970s. Early in the 1980s, James Brown lived in New York, where he started his career with an exhibition at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery. James Brown is often described as an explorer, a shaman, a scientist, even a diviner. His approach to art is both scientific and spiritual: he methodically studies each technique – painting, ceramics, engraving – until he masters it completely. The artist currently lives and works between Mérida, Mexico and Paris, France. His work is also part of many important private and public collections worldwide, among them the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, USA; the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, France; the Kolumba Museum in Cologne, Germany; the Centre for Contemporary Art of Málaga, Spain. In 2017 the Museo Diego Rivera-Anahuacalli in Mexico presented his work in an important solo show. He died in 2020.
