Biography

James Christopher Hill

Artist Biography

 

Born in Charleston, South Carolina, James Christopher Hill, has gained international notoriety for his paintings by his collectors and viewers. He is best known for painting his landscapes and skyscapes filled with vibrant color, swift movement and radiant energy in a contemporary stylistic language. His work explores the use of color and rhythm to create powerful, sweeping images that seek to provoke a particular mood or emotion by capturing an exact moment or memory in time that is meaningful to both him and the viewer.

 

As a professional artist in his early twenties including owning his own art gallery in downtown Charleston, James decided to acquire formal training at the prestigious Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. In 1998, he graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Computer Animation; a field that while at Ringling, focused mainly on the understanding and discipline of master drawing and painting skills. His senior thesis entitled "Jataka" took home the Gold Oscar in the category of Best Student Computer Animation in 1998 from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 1999, James returned to the discipline of fine art and his work has been shown in numerous galleries in the Southeast and he has recently had two gallery openings in Manhattan, New York where his work was well received. He has won numerous awards in both fine art and computer animation including the AVA, Telly and the Aurora. He has served as vice-chair for both city art councils and art guilds in Charleston. In 2007, he created and published his first art book entitled Skyscapes and Landscapes. Since 2005, he has curated several shows with over 30 artists and is now showcasing his works as and exhibitor at Science Fiction/Fantasy conventions including DragonCon, Megacon, Heroes Con, ConCarolinas and ConTemporal 2011, a steampunk convention where he was the featured artist for the show.

 

James has been developing a growing number of private and commercial collectors throughout the United States and the world. His work has been profiled on various articles, magazines and television shows. Still, James works every day to try to expand his knowledge and his talents through the study of the great masters of art throughout the ages.

 

Aside from his traditional fine art oil paintings of landscapes and figures, James' latest works finds him returning to his passion of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and even Steampunk Genres. These new paintings and designs focus on several subjects including paintings of old abandoned houses, dark castles and ruins or even eerie, fog-ridden cemeteries at night during a full moon are an homage to the brilliant cinematography of the classic horror films in black and white while at the same time, James is creating colorful paintings of vast cities and beautiful fantastical environments that are a hopeful look at our future.
