Born in 1979 James Edward Gaubert has always lived in Reading, Berkshire. Whilst he studied Art and Photography at school his skill and passion for this was consequently put on a back burner whilst he pursued a 12 year career in Marketing. Having said that, his career choice did ensure he always had one toe dipped in the creative pond.
It wasn't however until the beginning of 2011, when James really re-ignited his creative and artistic talents during what can only be described as a very emotional time in his life.
During this period James found real escapism and expressionism through his artwork that also provided him with a therapeutic channel for reflection and re-evaluation, almost helping to start a new journey.
James has worked with many medium including acrylics, oil and watercolours. However, his core work is all done using simple black on white inks. This is demonstrated in the images that are presented here.
From a style perspective James is considered to be a modern contemporary artist focussing on current high impact imagery, injecting his own urban/comic/pop/art deco type influence. When describing his artwork he explains that:
"My style is what I like to call Urban, Bachelor Art, the type of work that you would expect to see hanging in a modern day bachelor's penthouse apartment, surrounded by hi-tech gadgets and minimalist furniture. Although having said that I guess my work actually has much wider appeal"
