Greg James – Artist Biography

At 18 Greg James enrolled at Claremont Technical College (later to become Claremont School of Art) where he studied Fine Art, majoring in Sculpture. Studies in Ceramics, Welding, Forging and Metal Casting, Fiberglass and Reinforced Plastics and Photography were undertaken concurrently at various colleges.

After graduating from Claremont School of Art in 1974 with a Diploma in Fine Art – Sculpture, he embarked on a two year work and study tour of Europe. During this time Greg James attended drawing classes at the Hammersmith Polytechnic in London and worked as an artist’s assistant in Spain.

On returning to Western Australia, he worked as a Sculpture Technician for Claremont School of Art for two years. In 1978 Greg James set up a small foundry in his home studio, and staged his first solo exhibition. Fremantle became his base in 1987, where he took up studio space at the rear of the Fly By Night Musicians Club.

In 1990 he moved studio to Henry Street, re-established bronze casting facilities and produced The Strike for the Perth Mint and Pietro Porcelli for Kings Square, Fremantle.

In 1993 Greg moved studio to the J Shed, where he developed the Greg James Sculpture Studio Gallery, and has since established himself as a leading figurative sculptor.

Greg’s numerous public sculptures have become well known landmarks throughout Fremantle and Perth. His small collectable work is currently on display throughout Australia, and in galleries in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand. His work has also featured previously in Rome, Paris, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong.

Today, Greg is a member of the City of Fremantle Public Art Taskforce, and continues to undertake commissions of artworks for public spaces, whilst creating a growing range of collectable sculptures, drawings and paintings.
