James Hull

Founder & B.A.D.A.S.S.

I work with artists to help them get across just what they want to say - in just the way they want to say it.

My talent lies in discovering how each artist works and then understanding how to emphasize their individual vision for a new audience. 

I enjoy the creative process of making exhibitions, writing essays and taking photographs that express the concepts that each artist identifies as key to their individual pursuit. 

I try to stay out of the way, not to do things as I would want them, but as the artist knows they need to be. My experience working with hundreds of artists makes these interactions as enjoyable as possible - after all, we are not saving lives here...but we are creating history.
