- Alumni, 2005
James Allen studied Fine Art Printmaking at BA and MA Level at Canterbury Christ Church University before completing The Drawing Year at The Prince's Drawing School (now the Royal Drawing School). Selected Group Exhibitions include the RA Summer Exhibition, ING Discerning Eye and the Jerwood Drawing Prize. The focus of James’s work is the activity of the human form corresponding with architectural surroundings, with high levels of movement from the figure working in conjunction with the building's structural solidity. Drawing is the essential language that fuels his creative practice with the need to record and expose time.
