James Dawe stands out as an artist and commercial illustrator/image maker with his work in predominantly mixed media collage and digital manipulation. His work is ever unexpected, often abstract, dramatic, “glitchy”, and reflective of his alternate eclectic energy.
James’ combines wide ranging source material seamlessly, to generate his own unique perception of reality. In his carefully thought out compositions, there is a constant desire to intertwine fashion, sport, mechanical structure, and photography to produce original visions. Having successfully managed the median between his design portfolio and fine art, he has worked for various clients including: Nike, Reebok, Wieden & Kennedy, BDDO, Wired, Leo Burnett, The New York Times, Bloomberg, Red Bull, DDB London, Fallon, Condé Nast, GQ Style, and Network Rail.
