Art James is an emerging artist, working primarily in watercolors. He is expanding upon the new genre of art that he has created; NONSENSICAL REALISM. He often employs a combination of layering bold colors and intricate details motivated by a desire to combine subjective impressionism with an objective statement of the obvious within the borders of the same painting.
