Mind-Melting Artwork by James Jean

James Jean is a famous Taiwanese–American artist who has created work for clients such as DC Comics, Prada, and ESPN. In 2008, he retired from illustration to concentrate on painting. His style is turbulent, swirling, psychedelic, and sophisticated, showing artistic influences from “Chinese scroll paintings, Japanese woodblock prints, and Renaissance portraiture.” Despite this variety of genres and his ever-evolving color palette, Jean’s art remains cleverly cohesive, compelling our attention through dynamic styles. The universal worlds he shows to us are vast in their energies and subject matter, ranging from full-bodied eroticism to bits of dark introspection.
