James Roper has exhibited widely across the world, including solo shows in New York, London, San Francisco, Barcelona and Milan.

Roper draws inspiration from a varied array of sources, from Japanese animation, Baroque sculpture and film, to psychedelia, martial arts and haute couture fashion. Roper's unique visual style arises from his skilful intertwining of these contradictory elements.
