Ep.135 James Earley - Ministry of Arts Podcast
In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to James Earley
James uses his work to raise awareness of issues such as homelessness, mental health and war. James wants to make the invisible visible, he wants his art to scream and demand attention.
James Earley has thus emerged as one of the foremost pioneers of figurative and hyperrealism painting in Britain today, a fact all the more remarkable since James is a self-taught artist.
In 2019 James was awarded first prize at The prestigious London Biennale, the Giotto International Prize and the Leonardo da Vinci International Prize. James was awarded the Venice International Art Prize in 2020 and has been chosen by The European Cultural Centre to exhibit his work at the Venice Biennale 2022.
