James Bama limited edition prints.
Considered as one of the top Western artists in the world, James Bama creates exceptionally realistic portraits of cowboys, native Americans, and the western landscape. From clothing to the wrinkles on a weathered face, the artist uses his natural talent and his training from many years as an illustrator to capture every detail of his subject.
Born in New York 1926, James Bama grew up painting and drawing. After attending the Art Student’s League, he became a successful professional illustrator, drawing numerous book and magazine covers for publications such as Readers Digest and Saturday Evening Post. In the early 1970’s James travelled to Wyoming to stay with a friend on his ranch. He became enamored with the landscape and began to paint Western motifs. In the early 1990’s James signed with an art publisher to do a series of limited edition prints, which exposed his artwork to a more national audience and took his career to another level. He was inducted into the Illustrator’s Hall of Fame on 2000, and has won numerous other awards.
