A master of the portrait, James's subjects are primarily heroes - guys with a lot of heart - in bold colors as seen in the photos to the left. This young wood sculptor likes the challenges presented in the complexity of the human face. "I like to pay homage to those that are great." James admits, "I’m inspired by Superman. I know he’s fictitious but for me to wear a superman shirt makes me work a little harder to be as strong as I can possibly be."

James might not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but he can show us how to create works ready to burst through the next piece of plywood! Alternate egos, a special power, and a bold determination to make the world a more beautiful place - James is certainly well on his way to becoming a superhero.

James Stanley, better known as "Jigsaw James," makes incredible works by cutting a sheet of plywood into hundreds of little pieces - only to put them all back together again... It’s dangerous and delicate at the same time. One wrong slip of the saw can mean starting over from scratch.
