About the Artist

Canadian artist James Wyper was born in British Colombia in 1971, and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, home of modernist painter William Perehudoff, whose work was particularly inspiring, and the excellent Mendel Art Gallery, which was an influential childhood sanctuary.

His bright, geometric paintings explore the idea that state-of-being (consciousness) is causal. They illustrate states of meditation, ecstasy, spontaneous spiritual realization, and transcendence. James' liminal paintings are active devices which emanate the energy of the intention of their making, and reflect to viewers their own state(s) of consciousness.

James lives on Pender Island, near Vancouver, with the author Marlo Johnson, and their rescue dog Ana. His work is collected and available internationally, and he welcomes mural and painting commissions.
