Modern and contemporary artists and art - James Howard
James Howard's Asian Tour 2009
Yesterday was a weird day. I opened the paper to see a big picture of myself, spent most of the morning answering calls from journalists and by early evening I was talking about food with Chris Evans on Radio 2 (we were meant to be talking about art but I think he was put off when I started describing one of my works live on air).
Most contemporary artists dream of having a work bought by Charles Saatchi. James Howard, a student at the Royal Academy Schools, was shocked to discover yesterday that Britain´┐Żs most influential collector of contemporary art wanted 46 of his ´┐Ż an entire graduation show. Howard, 26, one of 19 students who have just completed the RA Schools´┐Ż postgraduate course, was fast asleep when Mr Saatchi popped into the academy last week.
The annual Schools Show sees the transformation of the RA Schools studios into a stunning contemporary gallery space.
This year's show highlights works by 19 RA Schools students who have completed their three-year postgraduate course. The exhibition, which provides an excellent opportunity to view new work by emerging artists, includes art from a variety of media including painting, sculpture, digital printmaking and video.
