James Jean is a Taiwanese American visual artist, known for both his commercial work and fine art gallery work. He is known in the American comics industry as a cover artist for various books published by DC Comics, as well as for his work for Prada, ESPN and Atlantic Records. His work, which has been collected in numerous volumes, has been compared by The New York Times to that of Maxfield Parrish.
"The most awarded cover artist in the comic book biz has certainly transcended the trappings of sequential art to become a force majeur in the contemporary art world. His liquid colors and effortless-looking lines are nothing short of magical. He came to a life-painting workshop we hosted at BSFA back in 2009 and watching him work was a revelation. Looking at portfolios these days I see a lot of his influence on the new generation."
