James Cochran (aka Jimmy C) is an Australian artist hailing from Adelaide. He became known for his realist narrative paintings in oil depicting the marginalilsed human subject in the urban enviroment and is now perhaps best known for his distintive drip painting style. Cochran is classically trained, having studied a fine arts degree. Of his motivations to pursue a career in art he says: “After I worked for a year in 9-5 job I found that my soul was dying”.
We, in London, have been fortunate enough to have been visited by Cochran who has painted some amazinf pieces of street art on walls in East London.
