Marcus James

Its about time I started to write about friends and colleagues that produce beautiful work. The first of these people is a lovely friend of mine, Marcus James.  Ever since we first met back in our student days I have always been a big fan of his style of illustration. His most recent drawings of  Iberian bulls in Coral and bullfights in Spain and Southern France, are stunning. To see more and understand the influences behind his work, follow the links below.

A visit to Tate Modern

'Spanning nearly five decades, and coinciding with the artist’s 80th birthday, Gerhard Richter: Panorama is a major retrospective exhibition that groups together significant moments of his remarkable career.'

I recently went to to see the Gerhard Richter exhibition at Tate Modern. I was suprised by just how much of his work I enjoyed. Big fan of some of the abstract paintings such as 'Grey' 1973 but also really loved some of the realist paintings based on photos. Well worth a visit.

'Iceberg in the mist' 1982
