James Brown finished college in California and subsequently went to Europe, attending the Ecole nationale supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris. His early works were influenced by primitive art and classic modernism. He continued to live in Paris until 1995, when he moved to Mexico. He and his wife Alexandra founded Carpe Diem Press, publishing books with artists. Brown divided his time between Mexico and Europe, exhibiting his work in France, Germany, Italy and Holland, often working in Paris. Much of his work is abstract but with recognizable faces or objects or biomorphic elements. Brown’s works include paintings, sculptures, prints, and collages.
