After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) at the Immaculate Heart College in Hollywood, California, James Brown left the United States in the early 1970s to study in Paris, later in Florence, and tour Europe. In the early 1980s, he began to add influences from tribal art to his works. He began exhibiting in New York, and was much acclaimed. Though he often spent time in the USA, he continued to live in Paris. He increasingly exhibited in European galleries, where his work was now seen in the context of a post-war European modernism in the tradition of Jean Dubuffet. His work, which has changed over the years, still combines the modernist tradition with influences from tribal art. Much of his work is non-representational but shows recognizable faces or objects.
