‘Urban Dwellers’ is not a newly finished piece… In fact, it represents the very beginning of Paul’s iconic ‘Urban Graffiti’ collection.💥
While travelling along the English canal-ways 15 years ago, Paul was noticing the juxtaposition of the wildlife and the urban environment in places like Birmingham which sparked up an idea in his creative mind…
Paul James painted ‘Urban Dwellers’ for himself, to capture one of his ideas on canvas but never thought that his audience would like the ‘Urban Graffiti’ concept.
More than a decade later, we have thousands of collectors admiring the iconic collection so we wanted to share with you where it all started.
“I didn’t know how popular this piece would be 15 years ago. I painted it before our handsome mallard ‘Charlie’… As the Urban Graffiti collection is growing, I wanted to show you where it all started for me.” – Paul James
