Trujillo is a self-taught emerging contemporary artist currently living and
working in the northern tier of Pennsylvania. He was born November of 1981 in
Philadelphia, PA to William and Catherine Trujillo. James greatly enjoys and
uses the acrylic medium and is passionate about combining it with various sized
stretched canvases. The main subject or idea of James's work is the tree, however, the way he sees, paints and interprets them are unique, creative,
original and unusual.
A retired Navy veteran, proud father of two small boys,
runner and active member of his community who somehow finds the time for his
art. His vision for art, what art is, what art should be and how art is done
are extremely important characteristics that factor into his work. He usually
finds that between running, traveling and parenting there's a space for
painting but he won't bother unless the passion, desire and motivation to
create something special for the world exists and is extremely prevalent.
I believe my
motivation to paint and the subject I have chosen comes from the experiences
I've had, the life I've lived and the life I currently live combined with the
ability to utilize the depths of my mind as factors for the art I create, will
create and have created.
