Jon James uses a signature method of using gravity to create straight drips of color across the canvas in his works. This process in repetition creates a precisely layered and textured surface, without the use of rulers or computer imaging.

JON JAMES currently works and lives in Manhattan. The process of his works are created by dripping paint across and down the canvas, in repetition, creating an intensely textured and layered canvas which becomes three dimensional; all without the aid of rulers or computer imaging. The result: magnificent fields of paint and color with incredible depth and texture.
Jon moved to NYC after graduating from Cornell with degrees in Painting and Photography, with his work immediately catching the eye of dealers and collectors like Sara Meltzer and Richard Sachs and selling to worldwide corporate and private collections.
