Welcome … James Blake has travelled all around England, Europe, The Balkans, The Mediterranean, North Africa, North & Central America and New Zealand in pursuit of his love of music, art and photography. Previous to music, art, photography, and now (art) history, James studied Public Media, Communications & Cultural Studies at Trinity & All Saints College, Leeds University and Fine Art Sculpture at the West Wales School of Art, as well as working as an artist, as a graphic and web designer and as a dj / club promoter. James was educated in England but was very fortunate to have spent his childhood growing up in Malta and Dubai, with visits to South East Asia, Europe and Scandinavia with his parents.
This website contains links to all of James’ music mixes from 1993-2003 and 2007-2011, art and design books from 1993-2003 and photography books from 2005, 2007 & 2012-2018 and (art) history books from 2019 onwards (Sadly nothing has survived from a year spent in Cornwall (2004), or has survived from a 6,000km journey taken in America (2006) and also nothing for the three years spent in New Zealand (2008-2010)). All of the work has been made presentable / re-presentable between 2018 and 2022. The music, art and design, travel, photography and (art) history are all interlinked as ‘two halves of the same coin’. A balance of creativity and observation.
James is also a member of WPO and Lightstalkers and his work has featured in The Courier (UK), The Kent Messenger (UK), Kent On Sunday (UK), De Duinstreek (Holland), Mondo In Tasca (Italy), Guida Viaggi (Italy), Globetrotter Magazine (Italy), Cyprus Weekly (Cyprus), Options Newspaper (Cyprus), Sunday Mail (Cyprus) and The Photographer’s Mail (New Zealand). James’ work has been exhbited in England (“Genius”), Holland (“Unique Abstract Expressionism”), Cyprus (“Extraordinary”, “Spectacular”, “Stunning”, “Amazing”, “Beautiful”) and New Zealand (“Fantastic”).
