Canadian-born Nathan James is a pop artist whose latest works entitled ’Pessimist Pop’ explode off the canvas. Now based out of London, England, James works to create pieces that have elements of everyday pop culture. He aims to represent, as written on his site, “on the lives and worlds of the underclass, failures, perverts and slackers, rather than beautiful, successful people.”

His pieces are eye-catching due to his large use of color and comedy. Every piece of his canvas’s are covered from top to bottom with swirls of different patterns, lines and shapes.

His mix of cartoons, graphics, as well as realism produces a multitude of different perspectives. Eclectic is one way his pieces can be described, as they are a mix of various forms of art.
