Uniform Wares 12:24 Presents : James Joyce : 06:00 :By Oliver Fowles,
Today's 12:24 artist produces work that is instantly recognisable in it's colourful, hard egded simplicity. His work is often subtly amusing but shows incredible skill that is rooted in the practice of graphic design. Introducing London based artist and designer, James Joyce whose chosen time for 12:24 is 06.00AM
Developing themes and imagery that celebrate the everyday, James Joyce's practice looks to transform the seemingly commonplace into bright, iconic shapes, offbeat messages and striking compositions. With a process rooted in drawing and printmaking, he works across a range of media, creating sceenprinted editions, one-off art pieces and three-dimensional objects. As a result of his exploration of imagery, typographic forms and applied graphics, Joyce has garnered a following around the world who regularly buy his work, and he is often invited to collaborate with brands to create bespoke and exclusive signature products.
Joyce’s work has been featured in numerous magazines, books and awards annuals (he was awarded a coveted D&AD yellow pencil in 2011), and his bold and witty approach to image making regularly attracts commissions from a wide range of international clients including Apple, Nike, BBC, The Guardian, The New York Times, and Wallpaper*.
His work has also been exhibited in various group shows in both London and New York, and in a solo show at London's Kemistry Gallery where he covered each wall of the space from floor to ceiling with dozens of printed artworks.
Born in Wolverhampton, Joyce studied at Walsall College of Art and went on to study graphic design at Kingston University. He now lives and works in London.
