"I met Jim in Bristol in 2018. He was in a small park on his own with his tent. The park was full of homeless people who were in various groups enjoying the sun and I was struck with how lonely Jim seemed. I spoke to Jim for a long time over a period of 5 days and I got to know him well. He had suffered a traumatic life and his future was dark yet he was hopeful and he really had a passion for life.
I wanted the background to be important to this painting. I was often struck by how Andy Warhol used bright coloured squares as a background to his portraits of the rich and famous and I wanted my portrait of Jim to show how we are all rich and famous and we are all equally deserving of bright colours. The colours that I used are significant as I wanted the violet and red to match the colour of the bruising around Jims’ eye. This is a touch of irony as I am often advised by galleries that paintings should be decorative above all which is something that I strongly disagree with." James Earley

British artist James Earley is one of the worlds leading Hyperrealism Artists.

James first came to prominence in 2013 when he was chosen to be a part of The Art Investors’ acclaimed 2013 “Seven Artists Exhibition”, this exhibition was held at London’s Strand Gallery and focused on 7 of the very best young Artists in the world. James’ display of his portrayal of famous musicians was much publicised.

His work took another route in 2015 with his powerful and emotional studies of homeless people, victims of war and religious martyrs. This work took him to another level in the art world as he was nominated by The BP award, The Royal Institue of Oil Painters and The Royal Institute Of Portrait Painters culminating in his work being displayed at the iconic and famous Mall Gallery in the heart of London. James was selected in 2019 to show his work at the prestigious London Biennale.

James has been described by the German Kunst Heute publication as well as The International Contemporary Art Curators as one of the most significant artists in the world today.

James Earley has thus emerged as one of the foremost pioneers of figurative and hyperrealism painting in Britain today, a fact all the more remarkable since James is a self taught artist.

In 2019 James was awarded first prize at The prestigious London Biennale.
