About the artist

James Eugene (Jim114) is a artist who skirts the line between traditional and digital art. As a graduate of Atlanta College of Art (formulti-media and painting), and The Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art (for painting and illustration), James finds himself in a very uniqueposition of being a classically trained, and digitally disciplined creative person.

His work most influential and important collection of work is titled, "Neo Africa" or N.A. for short. This body of work is encompassed within 1 story of a futuristic, shamanistic, and revolutionary Africa that he has been workingnonstop on since 1993.

By combining art nuances from historical art movements such as Dadaism, Pop Art, Surrealism, Russian deconstructionism, with his own rich Haitian, African, and African American artistic legacies, and cultures, James Eugene creates the base for his unique style. Then, fusing visions from Ancient Egyptian-Nubian history, various global influences, shamanistic esthetics, the uncertain future, propaganda paintings from the past century, and his own metropolitan upbringing in the Tri-State New york area, He has created a new mythology for Africa. Neo Africa.
