James Jean's contribution to MTAC 2018 - Hunting Party II Signed Print #83

Self-taught artist and habitual doodler, Craww lives and works in Sheffield, UK drawing inspiration from daydreams, music, comics, nature, gin and an overactive imagination. His work is a stream of consciousness ramble through the woods, uncovering secret stories and ambiguous connections, it’s direction influenced as much by accident and a short attention span as design. It is a world populated with skulls, crows and melancholic girls embraced by flowing lines and natural forms. He enjoys seeing his creations taking on a life of their own as their world is realized with a mixture of elegance, balance and disciplined chaos, using oils, acrylic, graphite, charcoal, ink and whatever else is at hand. Following a career in graphic design, his art is informed by a sense of balance and narrative flow, making sense of the seemingly chaotic drips and washes of colour.
