James Rosa (b. 1965) is a Brooklyn based artist and documentarian. Rosa draws inspiration from his environment. His drawings, paintings, and collages begin with simple outlines of found objects. They grow into intricate compositions of narrative and abstract worlds. These illustrations of Rosa’s colorful inner life and environment often include houses, faces, flowers, rats, circles, and teeth. Throughout his work, Rosa’s use of harmonious, saturated colors bind his pieces together across subject matter and style. Each individual story and arrangement acts in relation to the work before it.
