British artist James Earley is recognized as one of the UK’s leading Portrait Artists. He first came to prominence in 2013 when he was chosen to be a part of The Art Investors “Seven Artists Exhibition”. James’ display of his portrayal of famous musicians was much publicised.
His work took another route in 2015 with his emotional studies of homeless people, victims of war and religious martyrs. This work led him to be nominated by The BP award, The Royal Institue of Oil Painters and The Royal Institute Of Portrait Painters. Subsequently his paintings were displayed at the famous Mall Gallery in the heart of London.
James Earley has thus emerged as one of the foremost pioneers of figurative painting in Britain today, a fact all the more remarkable since James is a self taught artist.
