Where art meets interiors



Jimmy's painting style and technique is self-taught.

As an artist with a graphic design background, he had a tendency to work in a very controlled and precise style. He was very accomplished as a realistic painter, technically his work was great, but his work lacked energy. In December 2010 Jimmy decided to approach his painting style differently.

He started by eliminating the use of small brushes. Some of his brushes now range between 6cm and 15cm in width. "I forced myself to refrain from performing perfectly controlled detailing strokes and instead focused on performing bold, strong strokes using only larger brushes". His aim was to create energy and life in his work. 

Jimmy has a tendency to work on a rather large format. His canvasses often range between 1.5 meters to 2 meters and larger.

In all his work he tries to incorporate the use of contrast and good composition. 

Jimmy started out painting portraits of Hollywood actors, celebrities and icons, focusing on the ones he loved the most, but also ones with a classic look and feel to them, actors like Jack Nicholson, Marlon Brando, Christopher Walken, James Dean, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe to name but a few.

He has since moved onto doing more personal work, focussing on creating portraits of totally unknown people. Jimmy has also started doing nudes and aims to explore the beauty and sensuality that is found in nudity.

"I constantly challenge myself in my painting and while I feel confident in the style that I now work in, I will keep introducing new ways and techniques of pushing this style forward and developing it even further." 

Jimmy is available for commissions.
