James Chiew 24

Everything that James creates started as a hobby. James did not receive any training in design or art. Therefore, he has developed his skills as professional art director and photographer all by himself. To develop his attention to detail, James started in 2005 with photography. As of 2009 James has started creating artwork, at first for the catering sector and subsequently for galleries and exhibitions. In 2013 one of James’ 3d-artworks had been chosen to exhibit during the exhibition “Beeld van Beatrix” in the palaces “Het Loo” and “Soestdijk”. A big honour for James,being selected from 72 artists. Moreover, he was the only artist with an Asian background. Characteristic of James’ artwork is the combination of analogue techniques (canvas, interior products and materials) and digital techniques (photography and design software). He is always looking for new materials to work with. James combines these materials and creates new artwork with for example wood, gold-leaf, different kinds of paint, synthetics, epoxy or stainless steel. This way ever more innovative artwork will arise.
