  • I can’t express enough how much I love James Jean’s work!

  • These are incredible, the detail and line quality are lovely.

  • definitely some shades of hans belmer going on here… love it.

  • Mak

    I was lucky enough to see his most recent show, REBUS, at the Martha Otero Gallery (which was recently taken down) while on a trip to L.A. in March and it was one of the most breathtaking art experiences of my life. I’ve been a fan of Jean for years but he’s really been out-doing himself lately. Very inspiring.

    • Sarah Rafik Morcos

      I saw that same show. His work is very inspiring.

  • very cool!

  • Toby

    He’s so great! and @Julia, yeah, hadn’t noticed that before!
