James Roper


James Roper has exhibited widely throughout the world including solo shows in New York, London, San Francisco, Barcelona and Milan.

Alongside his painting, drawing, sculpture and film-making Roper has also worked as an illustrator for clients such as Nike, Facebook, MTV, Ford, NBA, Converse and Adobe.

Roper draws inspiration from a varied array of sources, from Japanese animation, comic books and film, to psychedelia, Baroque sculpture and haute couture fashion - plus everything in between - a clash of sometimes contradictory elements from which arises his unique multi-faceted visual style.

Born in Knutsford, England, 1982. Roper graduated in 2005 from the Manchester School of Art with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art.
