Nathan James

Nathan James

Born in Canada, Nathan James spent much of his life in the Toronto area before, moving to London in 2006, where he currently lives and works.

He has previously exhibited in group exhibitions in Luxembourg, Milan, Moscow, London, Newcastle upon Tyne and New York, with solo exhibitions in Luxembourg, Toronto and London.


Bleak comedy and personal tragedy sit uncomfortably close together in Nathan James’ characters, which draw on both the failed industrial background of his childhood in Ontario, and the fantastical world of cartoons, characters and the golden age of Hollywood, which has long fascinated him.

Combining an almost old-fashioned, painterly approach to his art with very modern ideas of representation and humour, his subjects are captured in various states of disintegration, mutation and  grotesque evolution. His series, Creepshow, is at once, a deeply personal and voyeuristic document of lives, habits, problems and people who contemporary art often overlooks.
