    JAMES MANNING BIO
    James Manning is a visual artist, digital communicator and writer. Originally from Canberra and hailing from a family of artists, James has always had a pencil or brush in hand, and it was inevitable that a career in creative arts would be his path. James left for the bright lights of Sydney after graduating with a graphic design degree and from there worked as an artist, designer and illustrator in a career that spans the globe, from New York to Asia, Sydney and back Canberra. In a long and successful career as a graphic designer, James has developed an affinity with colour, shape, form and function and brings a collaboration of structure and freedom to his artworks. Balancing the marks, angles and lines of a graphic grid with the flowing freedom of type form and unconstrained marks, James looks to explore the discordant harmony between the order of graphics and chaos of expressionism. As an experience designer in digital design where success is based upon pixel perfection, James’ expressive artworks explode away from the constraints of that medium and bring a balance to his creative life.
