Artist StatementIt really comes down to exploration of concept and medium. I'm influenced by everything from my early love of heavy metal and horror movies, current politics and pop culture, and art of all generations. So it's the obvious process and imperfections that tie my work together.
Native to RI, jimshea moved to Western Massachusetts in 1990 and got involved in the punk/hardcore/skate scene. It was an introduction to a creative crowd and he played bass with several region bands. In 2001, he moved to Baltimore, while a great deal of his time was dedicated to a full time job in education and pursuing a degree in graphic design. On top of this busy schedule there were still many hours spent in the basement studio. In 2009 it came obvious he could no longer deny this passion/compulsion. In just a few short months he was participating in group shows not only in his hometown but also TX and CA.
