We explored a few concepts with James for an office mural. Ultimately we decided not to go ahead but James was easy to work with and willing to participate in an exchange of ideas.

I am so thrilled with the amazing work James did in transforming my ugly rainwater tank into a vibrant, interesting and original work of art. My little backyard is now bursting with colour and it is a real talking point. If you can't hide it, flaunt it!! Thank you James!!!!

About
James Smith is an artist born and raised based in Adelaide, South Australia. I am renowned in the community for my vibrant colour palette. I call myself a "feel good" artist. “I want to create art that makes me feel good whilst making others feel good. I want to evoke positive emotion and completely change a space where I place my work in”. My work is abstract and makes reference to nature, wildlife, life moments mashed with free flowing shapes, lines and patterns. My creations have been heavily inspired by a time spent travelling around various tropical islands in the South Pacific and South America. Objects such as palm trees, banana leaves and cacti are a favorite. I have exhibited works in galleries and shows both locally, interstate and overseas. I have been awarded Best International Artist in 2019 at ADC (Art Design Consultants) Fine Art Gallery in Ohio, USA. I have worked and collaborated with local businesses across Adelaide painting murals, designed logos, produced street wear, custom wear as well as a limited edition clothing / line for a sustainable street wear store in Adelaide’s CBD. One of my largest projects was working with non for profit organisation Sight for All. I painted a mural for World Sight day (October 8th, 2020) down York Street in Adelaide’s CBD where my piece of work saw a grand opening and unveiling by the Executive Team, Lord Mayor, South Australian Governor and South Australian Health Minister.

I can replicate designs if it suits my style
