Graduating with an art degree from Nottingham Trent University in 2007, James Gillert’s primary interest at the time was sculptures constructed from scraps of metal acquired in walks around the city determined by entries in the periodic table.
The psychogeographical approach James took with his work evolved into new forms when he moved to London. He started to make pictures on aluminium, and soon found that his preferred material for mark making was charcoal. The subject matter sometimes references growing up in Curbar, directly and indirectly.
The art James creates is finding an audience in London and he has fans in new art strongholds such as Margate. He has been curating shows with other young artists in the capital, in particular a Hoxton collective known as Sedimental who have a strong online following.
