James Denmark Art Prints

James Denmark was born in Winter Haven, Florida on March 23, 1936 into a family of artists. He was exposed to color and form at an early age by his grandmother, a wire sculptor and quilt artist, and by his grandfather, a bricklayer noted for his unique custom design molds. He entered Florida Agricultural and mechanical University (FAMU) in Tallahassee, Florida on a sports scholarship. While pursuing a Fine Arts Degree there he came under the tutelage of the artist and acclaimed African American art historian, Dr. Samella Lewis who exposed him to the great tradition and achievements of the African American art movement. Upon graduation from FAMU, Denmark moved to Brooklyn, New York and taught art in the public school system. In 1976 he earned his Master of Fine Arts degree at Pratt Institute of Fine Art in Brooklyn, New York. The artist discovered a natural affinity for the medium of collage and quickly developed his own unique and easily identifiable style. His work is consistently sought by galleries and collectors. He has had numerous solo exhibitions, including museum shows, and he is represented in prestigious collections, most notably the 20th Century Collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. James Denmark recently moved from Brooklyn, New York to live in Yemassee, South Carolina.
