Born in West London, James Goldcrown is a self-taught artist/photographer now based between New York City & Los Angeles.

He left school at 17 and began working in a South London darkroom, leading him into a career as a fashion photographer. In 2004 at the age of 23, James left for Africa to create the documentary “To Die No More” which highlighted the AIDS/HIV epidemic. The film went on to win 2 awards and raised over £10,000 which was donated to the people featured in the film.

In 2007 James moved to New York and re-entered the fashion world. He began incorporating mixed media into his photography influenced by his previous days as a street artist in the early 90’s. James started to sell his artworks on the streets of New York where he eventually painted his first legal mural in 2014 which became an overnight success and led him to his first show at Miami Basel, where his work sold out in 2 hours. Now internationally renowned for his Bleeding Hearts/Lovewall murals, he has collaborated with brands and companies such as Skechers, Elizabeth Arden, Moncler, L’Oreal, Estée Lauder, Facebook, Google, Rag & Bone, Sephora, Island Records, Universal, MTV, Vogue, Bandier, Rimowa Luggage, Henri Bendel, Giorgio Armani as well as the artwork for Kygo’s album, Kids in Love and more.

James’ work can be seen across cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Boston, Austin, Dallas, Mexico City, London, Sydney, Melbourne, São Paulo, Shanghai and Tokyo, his work is also sold privately around the world.
