James Cochran a.k.a. Jimmy C

Born in 1973 - United Kingdom

BIOGRAPHY

James Cochran is an Australian artist who lives in London. In 2002 he got his Master of Visual Arts from the University of South Australia. In 1997 he graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts, University of South Australia (completed with first class Honours in November 1997).

His two interests in graffiti and oil painting converged, leading to the development of Cochran's signature aerosol pointillist style; portraits or urban landscapes painted entirely from blobs of spray paint. This technique developed into what he called the 'drip paintings' and the 'scribble paintings', composed of layers of coloured drips or energetic lines to form vibrant and poetic cityscapes and portraits.

The style that he created can be called neo-pointillism. He made his most famous paintings in the biggest cities of the world: New York, London, Paris, Rio, Berlin, Istanbul but also in cities in Belgium, Norway and, of course, Australia.
