It is always fun to work with new artists. With the internet being a global market, we have the pleasure of working with artists from all over. In this case, half way around the world. James McGrath is an Australian artist who found us on-line, and we were able to produce some stunning large prints mounted to 1/4″ plexiglas for sale at Champagne’s Home Decor in Scottsdale, Arizona. His art, described as ‘Baroque’, is something else. It is a unique marriage of old world meets new. It is something you must see to experience for yourself. Please join us March 20th at Champagne’s Home Decor for a champagne reception and a chance to meet the artist in person. Hope to see you there!

Born in Sydney, Australia in 1969, Mr. McGrath studied the techniques and principles of the 16th and 17th century masters at the studio school of Patrick Betaudier in Paris. Before graduating as an architect he worked as a studio assistant to Australia’s greatest expressionist painter, Arthur Boyd. While a lecturer in design and communications at New South Wales University, he was awarded several prizes for architecture and art including the Australian Post-Graduate Award, several design awards, and a residency in Paris. Over the last ten years he has exhibited in London, Paris, and Sydney. James has produced highly acclaimed digital installations and videos commissioned by several Australian museums which have subsequently been presented at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles . His work was also included in the Sydney and New York film festivals [1999 & 2001].
