Artist Spotlight: Roi James

This marks the first in a new monthly series I’ll be writing on some of my favorite artists. The subjects may be living or dead, famous or relatively unknown. What they will all have in common is a special quality in their work that I respect, admire and find beautiful in some way.

The first in this series is a painter named Roi James who is based in Austin, TX. I’ve known Roi for a decade. The first painting I saw of his was very much in the style of an old-world master, but with a bit of an ethereal twist.
