Vibrant color palettes and kinetic composition characterize James Caprell's highly emotive and deeply introspective abstracts on canvas. After moving to New York in 1998 for an investment-banking job on Wall Street, Caprell turned to his art for personal contemplation and a respite from the city’s pressures. It wasn’t long before he left finance in order to pursue his art full-time. The response to his work was more than favorable, and his artistic career blossomed. Amidst the rise in recognition, Caprell made it a priority to meet personally with his clients, be it at his Manhattan and Harlem studios, at the galleries representing him in Atlanta and Miami, or on visits to his collectors abroad. A far cry from the stereotypical “aloof” artist, Caprell became known for his gregarious personality and enthusiasm to discuss his work. The experience of interacting with his clients became so valuable that he began to envision a more permanent way to relate his paintings to his patrons, and so began the plans for his own gallery. In December of 2007, the James Caprell Gallery opened on Abbot Kinney Boulevard, the chic and eclectic pride of Venice, California.
