About James Shields:
In 2009, a year after graduating from Howard University with a degree in Business Marketing, I found myself laid off from my corporate job in New York City. While considering options for future work, I decided to explore my passion for the arts- I started painting. A few months later I decided to make that my "real job.”
Since that life changing decision I’ve traveled internationally on multiple street art tours, helped build an ed-tech startup, and continued to deliver hi-quality content through diverse platforms and partnerships globally.
I’m currently based in Oakland, CA where I continue to partner with organizations and individuals as an artist and creative strategist.
I am available for commissions, collaborations, and to discuss new projects. Just drop a line. Thanks!
