Born in London in 1969, James began to write Graffiti in 1984.
A decade later he had formalised the concept of spraypaint as 
the primary medium of expression and was beginning to personalise
his alter-ego signature as the gestural cage for contextual subject.
Since an Invitation, in 2000, to make his first solo exhibition of 
paintings on canvas in New York, he is widely recognised
as a pioneer of European and abstract Graffiti.
In Tokyo, 2002, he exhibits and creates installation paintings
In black & white and raw canvas, the breakthrough aesthetic
that is recognised today as his trademark style.
"the play of light and dark enabled SheOne to define 
the form and create pure visual poetry, as true beauty 
doesn’t come through the representation of the material 
world, it comes from the human soul."
A steady stream of exhibitions and international projects
coupled with artistic collaborations around product design, 
music and fashion have cemented his works and personally
stylised approach to image making into 
the contemporary urban canon.
