Los Angeles based artist James R. Eads works with a background in traditional printmaking and painting. Like a map to a new world, his pieces act as illustrations for something unknown. Eads takes this feeling of discovery and scatters it throughout his work, offering a glimpse of the underlying magic of everything. He uses motion and color to create impressionistic dreamlike paintings that sway between reality and fiction.

James works primarily with a digital drawing tablet to create his pieces. This allows for the seamless transition to high quality prints. He takes what he has learned from his experience in painting and printmaking and translates it to the tablet resulting in work that can disguise itself as something else.
