ABOUT THE ART
As with previous paintings in the Metanoia series, 'Metanoia VIII' describes a transitional state between new and old modes of being, suspended in a void amid uncertainty and turmoil. A state of limbo that also manifests within the gap between figurative and abstract art, a place where my artwork has always been delicately balanced.
James Roper has exhibited widely across the world, including solo shows in New York, London, San Francisco, Barcelona and Milan. Roper has created artwork for clients such as Nike, Facebook, MTV, Ford, NBA, Converse, Formula 1, Linkin Park and Adobe.
Roper draws inspiration from a varied array of sources, from Japanese animation, Baroque sculpture and film, to psychedelia, martial arts and haute couture fashion. Roper's unique visual style arises from his skillful intertwining of these contradictory elements.
Roper's work has also featured in numerous publications including Hi-Fructose, Dazed and Confused, Computer Arts and Art Review.
Born in Knutsford, England, 1982. Roper graduated in 2005 from the Manchester School of Art with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. He is currently based in Manchester, UK.
