Best known for his simple style of illustration and his fluid, hypnotic animation, visual artist James Paterson blends traditional and digital media to create an untamed palette of images in motion.

In recent years, Paterson’s unique synthesis of drawing, animation and programming has garnered attention and accolades from galleries and clients worldwide. His personal and collaborative works have been shown at the Design Museum in London, London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts, the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Taipei, the Seoul Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Sundance Film Festival, and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

Today, the bulk of Paterson’s work resides at, his personal site; and at, an online gallery dedicated to his collaborative work with Amit Pitaru.

Paterson was born in England in 1980 and has been in Canada since the age of 8. He currently lives in Montreal.
