James Chadderton is a British mixed media artist. His work, consisting mostly of post-apocalyptic landscapes, collapses the boundaries between traditional and composite drawing. James’ drawing style is characterised by a tendency towards magic realism, or moments of fantasy within realistic portrayals. His playful, colourful, and at the same time dark and nightmarish landscapes open up possibilities within the space between reality and fiction, or intent and interpretation.
Avid fan of post-apocalyptic films, science fiction, and video games, James has collaborated with EA at the Battlefield franchise as well as music legend Peter Hook at EP 1102/2011, and the BBC. His work has been exhibited in Clifford Whitworth Library (Salford), Buy Art Fair (Manchester), Generation Gallery (nationwide), and Incognito Gallery (Manchester), Manchester Print Fair (Manchester), Dot Art (Liverpool & Liverpool Art Fair (Liverpool). Winner of the People’s choice award Liverpool Art Fair 2019.
