Shiney Space Junk @ Paper Shadow A solo exhibition by JAGI I've worked with Jagi for as far back as I can remember and I'm extremely hosting his first show at Paper Shadow. James Greenaway's (or Jagi..) illustrative imagery is best described as pop-fantasy art, taking inspiration from manga, retro videogames, art nouveau and surrealism. Portrayed with these stylistic influences and within Jagi's worlds live giant, childlike, bionic samurai creatures, sometimes riddled with grief or floating around blissfully daydreaming, but always trapped and inseparable from their biomechanical armor. Bored and melancholic adventurers are found sitting a top floating platform game islands with rubix cubes and power-ups gathering dust nearby. These characters and landscapes are a reflection Jagi's youth, introvertedly spent drawing and designing platform and adventure video games in his sketchbooks. For better or for worse, he never really grew out of this habit of drawing, and now after decades of scribbling in sketchbooks, its time to make money! This show, the first solo exhibition by Jagi, contains a collection of 8 limited edition signed and numbered giclee prints, 8 original canvases and installations. Without sticking to any specific theme, these works simply reflect the emotion & imagination of Jagi while paying tribute to his predecessors & sources of inspiration. So proud to see this show come to fruition, Jagi has come along way and based on the talent and vision that he has I can't help but feel that its just the beginning.
