There are only few artists painting pictures and using typography as a style methd to express their ideas on canvas. James Rawson from Norfolk, England is one of them and a postmodern pop artist. James’ work blurs the boundaries between collage and painting, using preparatory paper collages as reference for his larger paintings. He aims to reflect the multi-layered visual experience we all live in. Appropriating the very images that have become implicit in our society, James’ work disturbs our sense of reality and confuses our perception of popular cultur, as he says.
Art could be much more expressive than design, because it knows now standards. That’s why real artists explore horizons and go across these imaginative borders.
