Almost a decade into his astounding career, James Jean has emerged as one of contemporary art's most important voices. From sell-out gallery shows in New York City and crowded signings at Comic-Con to kudos from the fashion world for his work for Prada, Jean's richly detailed art has struck a chord with fans across the globe. Rift showcases a brand-new collection of art in an elegant accordion-book format. Inside, two haunting landscapes span the connected pages—folded in a variety of ways, the pages reveal myriad images hidden within the larger paintings.
James Jean's commercial illustration career includes work for the New York Times, Atlantic Records, and Nike, as well as a series of award-winning covers for DC Comics and elaborate wallpaper installations and paintings for iconic fashion house Prada. Since 2007, Jean has focused his career on painting, book projects, and gallery exhibitions. He lives in Santa Monica, California.
