James Christensen Art Prints and Sculpture
Rarely does an artist capture and image for a point of view in more than one medium, but that is the case with James Christensen art prints and sculpture. There is a whimsical feeling to his paintings and artwork that goes beyond traditional fantasy. It captures the human emotion while retaining the feeling of another world. These beautiful pieces of art have an appeal to the person who wants something more than a traditional artwork, going beyond to reflect some of the mystery that is within us all. Capturing a fantasy moment is something that can be difficult, in fact it's probably the hardest part of the artistic dream. There are so many ways to explain a moment and with art it goes beyond the mechanics and the technical expertise into the heart of each person who sees it. This artist brings out those feelings of a far away places and adventure that we feature here on our web site. We have a couple of examples of this fine artist's work. You get a sense the time in his art and an excellent way of color which is hard to describe. James Christensen art prints have been well the world over and have a timeless quality to them.
Here's some background on the artist:
Inspired by the world's myths, fables and tales of imagination, James C. Christensen wants his work to add up to more than a beautiful - if sometimes 'curious' looking work of art. Having taught art professionally for over 20 years, he likes to think of the world as his classroom. His hope is that through whatever he creates "be it a porcelain, fine art print or book" he can convey a message, inspiration or a simple laugh. He believes that teaching people to use their imagination helps us find solutions to sooth the stresses of everyday life - or get a little lift to help us keep going. In short: all things are possible when you share Christensen's philosophy that "Believing is Seeing."
Christensen was born in 1942 and raised in Culver City, California. He studied painting at Brigham Young University and, for a while, the University of California at Los Angeles before finishing his formal education at BYU. Since then, he has had one-man shows in the West and the Northeast, and his work is prized in collections throughout the U.S. and Europe.
The artist has been commissioned by both Time/Life Books and Omni to create illustrations for their publications and his work has appeared in the prestigious American Illustration Annual and Japan's Outstanding American Illustrators. Christensen has also won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists.
