James Jean was born in 1979 in Taiwan, and raised in New Jersey. He was educated at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, and moved to Los Angeles in 2003, where he currently lives and works.
Considering his background in the commercial arts, Jean's genre defying style has raised the bar for a generation of young illustrators, having achieved steady success among elite clientele in the fashion, advertising and editorial industries. Winner of numerous prestigious awards, Jean has arrived at a point in his career, deciding to step away from commercial projects and focus his crative energy on fine art.
