James Reyes is an American artist who lives and works in New York City. Born to Puerto Rican and Colombian parents and raised in the Bronx, Reyes’s works are directly inspired by his cultural and social environment. His intensely gestural, occasionally chaotic brushstrokes, splashes, drips, sprays, and scrapes conjure figures both fully rendered and surreal, creating a mesmerizing push-and-pull between figuration and abstraction. Reyes received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York, and has since exhibited at numerous galleries, museums and fairs across the U.S.
