James Vaulkhard is a painter and sculptor based between London and Kenya.


img_8363James was born in Kenya, and later moved to the UK to study History of Art at Leeds University and then fine art and the statutory arts in Florence. He has produced work for group and solo shows, as well as for private collectors, which has taken him from Europe, to the US and Asia. He continues to travel and work between Kenya and the UK. James works in many different mediums today. James had a classical foundation, which one can see in much of his work but he has an unorthodox style which comes from constantly pushing himself to experiment with new techniques and narratives. “My work is a result of my journey to understand art and how we as humans perceive the world around us. I enjoy exploring the philosophy or language of art by experimenting with different techniques, mediums and narratives.”

“(His) paintings seek to evoke the soul; they transform the viewer. We are on a verge of a seismic shift in consciousness which will bring his work to the forefront of developments. ” – George H Lewis
