My name is James Nicholls, and I graduated from Norwich School of Art and Design in BA Graphic Design with Illustration in 2006. One of the most important aspects of my work is colour, bold contrasting colours are used to try to get the attention of the viewer. I am particularly interested in how different colours and shapes can be used together, to produce images that at first glance may not be entirely obvious to the viewer. An underlying theme of my work is science and nature, much of my work portrays animals and diagramtic representations of amongst other things the human body and plants. Two major influences on me are: the paintings of the Fauves and Pop Art.
