James Lincke

James Lincke is an illustrator, designer & storyteller who works traditionally with pencils, pastels, watercolor, oils, mixed media objects and Photoshop. The award-winning visual artist has been showcased worldwide through competitions and galleries. His work often manages visually craft a narrative. On an interview with Apex Magazine he says this about his work:

“I enjoy being playful and trying to make people laugh, but I also like making people feel uncomfortable and awkward. Creating artwork is very much like exercising the body. Some days, you should jog and eat light, whereas other days you should hit the weights and really challenge yourself.”

“I go back and study my work often in an attempt to better understand my journey with art, and I’d say there’s a definite twisted humor behind a lot of the artwork I’ve created.”
