Welcome to Wonderland
I discovered James Flames art a few years ago when I visited Austin during a South by South West festival. I entered the Flatstock festival and was astonished by so much great artists and amazing art gathered at the same place. This screen print festival is really great, and when I stimbled upon James Flames’ booth, I could only look in wonder in front of so much goodness. Vibrant colors, poetic visions, psychedelic realms… It really talked to me !
Some of his artworks really seem to come from another realm, the one from Alice in Wonderland. Through his art, James explores the fantasy of teenagehood and everthing that comes with it : love, passion, dreams, friendship, sex, exploration… It’s a real pleasure to dive into his posters. He works a lot as a gig posters artist, for bands such as Dave Matthews, but he also worked on pop culture licenses such as Back to the Future or the Goonies.
