Biography / James Bullough

American artist James Bullough lives and works in Berlin. His style mixes realistic portraiture with graphic abstractions as large murals and as studio paintings. He was part of many URBAN NATION projects like Wynwood Walls, Unity, and Lollapalooza, painted a One Wall and is featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

James Bullough grew up in Washington, DC, in the USA and was inspired early by gritty urban graffiti he discovered in the US capital. Bullough taught himself in realistic oil painting techniques by studying the Old Masters of The Netherlands. In combining their technical precision with the momentum of graffiti, his work is about staging compelling contrasts and juxtapositions. In his studio he is working with oil, outside he is using spray paint on massive facades. With his realistic portraiture and his stylized distortions he became an artistic commuter in the space between traditional and contemporary.
