February James is a self-taught artist from Washington DC, now running around LA with a few pencils and some paints.
February explains the work by saying, “I’m attracted to the lost people of life. I come to them rather intuitively and they wash past me in much the same way. Each of us feeding one another’s need. People collecting people. Then somehow, I find them in my paintings and instinctively move through mediums. It’s true what they say “We attract what we are”. So, i guess in a way my work is an ongoing body of self exploration. Painting all the things I’m running away from and all the things I’m hoping to become. Creating something that connects with an audience is the moment in which that self examination feels supported, and then I start again.
