Biography / James Marshall (aka Dalek)

James Marshall is an Illustrator, photographer, muralist and painter from New London, Connecticut who is also known under his moniker Dalek. With most of his artworks appearing on a wide range of media, including walls, sneakers, canvas, cars and sculptures he can be considered a true mixed-media artist. Marshall’s works have been featured as part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Influenced by graffiti, punk rock and skateboarding he first rose to fame for his work of a comic-like creation called “Space Monkey”, a character that, despite its name, more so resembled a mouse than a monkey, and was influenced by his love for pop culture, the punk scene’s vibe and cartoons. Over the years his art became more complex and turned into a medium through which he expressed his emotions, which led to the monkey slowly disappearing. Developing into an abstract artist Dalek, who acquired a Bachelor of Fine Arts from School of the Art Institute in Chicago, started creating paintings of flashy colours and shapes, representing the never-ceasing forces of the universe, which cancel and balance each other out.
