Dean & James are a duo consisting of London based artists Dean Fox and James Rawson.

Dean & James’ work combines traditional fine art with contemporary techniques. Dean Fox’s traditional oil painting style and James Rawson’s charcoal elements work brilliantly together to bring a minimalist and earthy quality to the classical themes set behind the charcoal.

Dean & James’ work is called “Elemental Artwork” and their first collection ‘Samsara’ originates from Sanskrit, representing circuitous change in relation to the cycle of life and death in which the material world is bound.

Dean & James use raw charcoal in their collaborative work, the oldest known medium in the world of art which was first used in cave drawings. The classical themes used in the artwork are reinterpreted into a contemporary style, imbued with spiritual connotations and dualities of light and dark, beauty and the abhorrent, objectivity and emptiness.

‘THE STORM’ IS A MIXED MEDIA ORIGINAL BY CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS, DEAN & JAMES

This original takes and transforms the iconic painting by French Victorian artist, Pierre Auguste Cot titled, ‘The Storm.’ Dean & James use the raw charcoal material to represent fleeting the mind and breathing new life into dead matter. Cot’s painting thus compliments the charcoal embellishment as Pierre’s painting portrays the idea of sensuality which was very much a taboo in 19th-Century France
