James Miles (born 1957)
James Miles was born in 1957 in San Francisco, California. He has been producing work in the Creativity Explored studio since 1997. Miles is best known for his ink drawings of miniature scenes. His tight and controlled lines illuminate the essential particulars of the buildings, cars, and figures that populate his drawings. His scenes often contain unusually combined perspectives, and at times occupy only a few square inches of an otherwise blank paper. Aside from his iconic style, James’ artwork is also characterized by repeated images that he uses in his drawings. Three girls chatting, a group of musicians, and an airplane are some of themes that are recurrent in his pieces.
