Clown Series (Blue) by James Joyce

British artist James Joyce is known for his vivid color, bold iconography and subverting recognizable symbolism. In 2015, James exhibited a video installation at Banksy’s Dismaland exhibition in Weston-Super-Mare alongside other international artists including Damien Hirst and Jenny Holzer.

James Joyce works in a variety of media including painting, installation, drawing and screen printing.

James Joyce was born in Wolverhampton, England and studied at Walsall College of Art and Kingston University. He lives and works in London.

He works in a variety of media including painting, drawing, sculpture and screen-printed editions, with the content often subverting recognisable symbolism.

That approach was demonstrated by his recent involvement with Banksy’s contemporary art show Dismaland, where Joyce exhibited a large video installation of a rotating and collapsing smiley face titled ‘Perseverance in the Face of Absurdity’. The piece became the signature image for the exhibition.

His work has been exhibited in various shows internationally including at Saatchi Gallery, London, UK (2018) Colette, Paris, France (2016), Spring Projects, London, UK (2014) and LaMaMa Galleria, New York, USA (2011). Most recently one of James’s clown paintings was exhibited at the Royal Academy, London as part of the 2018 Summer Show.

In 2015, Joyce exhibited a video installation at Banksy’s ‘Dismaland’ exhibition in Weston-Super-Mare alongside other international artists including Damien Hirst and Jenny Holzer.
