James Jirat Patradoon's ElectricityIllustration // Wednesday, 03 Apr 2013
Whenever I’m asked to describe James Jirat Patradoon’s artwork, I describe it as electric. Because it simply is. It’s bursting at the seams of it’s leather clad body with neon rays of pure energy.
James is an Australian artist who says his influences are “death metal, gangster rap, wrestling and science fiction.” Or basically, a modern day version of The Road Warrior. (I really want to see James’s version it.)
The ideas behind James’s work includes thoughts on the male persona of the early 21st century. Often this theme is hard to locate in a time when such emphasis is placed on the female form and feminine beauty making James clearly distinct. Like the shock of lightning.
