"I wanted to make a painting that highlights the refugee crisis and the terrible suffering they had to endure. The portrait is that of a Syrian boy who is currently living in a Turkish refugee camp, but it could also be an Iraqi boy or a Jordanian boy?

It was really important for me to show the devastating contradiction between the beautiful innocence of childhood and the destruction of the bombing inflicted by a foreign country. The conversation between the bomb and the Syrian boy captures the micro-second when the bomb lands and is about to explode. The bomb has no time to talk as the boy has accepted the brutality of the world he grew up in.

In the end, as the bomb says, time is money. I used the best canvases and handmade oil paints (Michael Harding paints) which I think are the best oil paints available."

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.
