James Jirat Patradoon is a Sydney artist / illustrator / animator / director / Uber enthusiast / legend and we're very lucky that when asked to be part of Building he not only created this new work (above) just for the show, but also came to Orange last week and painted the wall of the workshop area with Georgia Hill (pictured below).
He often combines super tight, weighted linework with hyper-colourful palettes recollecting 80s video game art and anime, and has created his own set of symbols and characters which have been commissioned by brands like Nike, RVCA, HBO and Converse. His website describes this as "surreal bubblegum cyberpunk paradise" and frankly I can't think of a better way to describe it.
Emerging from a print-making background, his art practice has also moved into the world of motion with a large body of animated gif art you can explore over here.
His giclee print 'Heaven Is Being With You' is an edition of 25 and $80. So while the work on the wall has sold, it is still available to purchase until the edition is all sold out. Come and have a look at Ludlow, open the rest of this week 10AM - 3PM (closed Sunday) and also check out the incredible mural collaboration between he and Georgia.
