James Kingman is a London-based contemporary artist, renowned for his lovingly-rendered screen prints of pop culture icons, including Madonna, Biggie Smalls and Elvis Presley.
James was brought up in Camden but works out of a studio in Catford. His career has seen him work for major creative agencies and household brand names.
Inspired by street art and graphic design, Kingman blends raw outputs with controlled elements and a dash of cheekiness to boot. His work often contains hand-crafted halftones, typefaces and other bespoke elements in acrylic pen - making each piece of his work unique in their own right. Often there are hidden messages and meanings embedded in the works for those who pay close attention.
