About the Artist : James Coleman - a name synonymous with sweeping skies, tropical rain forests, rich deep woods and silent deserts. The images created by this talented man continue to delight all that view them.

James Coleman was born in Hollywood, California in 1949. As a youth, his creative abilities seemed to dominate his world. Though he lacked the athletic skills of his young friends, he more than made up for it with imagination and ingenuity. As a young man, his interest in filmmaking and fine art would mark the beginning of a long, successful career in animated films. Coleman began his career with Walt Disney Studios in the summer of 1969, when his mother, who had been working as a secretary with Disney since the Hyperion days, got him a job in the studio's mailroom. His big break came when he entered one of his paintings in the studio art show. Several of the Disney artists viewing his work, saw his potential and realized he had an untapped ability and encouraged him to go into animation background painting.

Walt Disney Productions welcomed his creative energies. His first film, "Winnie, the Pooh and Tigger, too", sparked his interest not only in painting backgrounds but also in background design and color styling.

After completing, "The Rescuers", his first feature film, he was promoted to Background Department Supervisor, a position he held for nearly seventeen years. During that time, he personally hired and trained a select group of artists, whom he would work with for most of his career at Disney. While at Disney, James styled and worked on twelve films and over thirty short subjects which included "Mickey's Christmas Carol", "The Fox and the Hound", "The Great Mouse Detective", "The Black Cauldron", "The Little Mermaid", and Academy Award-winning, "Beauty and the Beast". All of which came to life with James Coleman's background images gracing the silver screen.

In 1991, after twenty-two years with Disney, James left to pursue a new career. He was ready to devote all of his time and talent to the love of his life, fine art. Today he continues to illuminate the art world with vibrant colors, gentle moods, powerful design and exquisite detail.

Coleman works in oil, watercolor, gouache and pastel. His work is impressionistic and luminous. His pieces intrigue the eye and touch the heart. His paintings are warm, inviting and unique. A master of color, light and design, Coleman has become one of the most collected and sought after artists around the world. James Coleman pieces can be found in many fine, personal and corporate collections including that of the Disney family. Coleman is a naturalist and environmentalist who involve himself with the National Parks and other environmental organizations. He has been a finalist for five years in the Arts for the Parks competition.

The contribution made by Coleman to the world of art over some thirty years, both in film and fine art, makes him one of the most collected artists in contemporary art. His work is represented by some of the most prominent and respected galleries in North America, the Orient and the Hawaiian Islands.

EARLY EDUCATION

During this preparation, he spent a significant amount of time with his grandparents, who were warm and creative people. Oleg watched as they crafted down comforters with intricately quilted patterns. Many of these designs incorporated linear images of flowers with petals—symbols of simplicity, purity, and beauty seen in much of Oleg’s later work.

Oleg gained admission to the Academy of Fine Arts when he was fifteen. There he spent each day painting, drawing, and studying traditional academic subjects. After three years, Oleg applied for admission to the Surikov Art Institute, the Soviet Union’s most prestigious art school. When his initial application was declined, he returned to Uzbekistan for a year and earned his degree in art education. He then reapplied to the Surikov; this time he was accepted — a great honor and an indication of his high level of talent and technical ability.

At the Surikov, Oleg studied under such highly respected Soviet artists as Yuri Karilov, Director of the Tretyakov Museum. He concentrated on producing his best work and completing his degree in a Master of Fine Arts.

MAKING A LIVING

With graduation nearing, financial survival as an artist concerned Oleg more and more. He hired a neighbor to sell his paintings on the street, and as the months went by his work began to sell. One day, the neighbor asked him, “Would you like to go to America?” He gave Oleg a matchbook with a phone number left by a man looking for talented artists to sponsor. Oleg called.

COMING TO AMERICA

The sponsor provided Oleg with a three-month visa to work in the U.S. He arrived in California and eventually found his way to Laguna Beach where he made a quick assessment of the type of art selling in local galleries. He completed several still-life paintings and took them to a Russian art dealer who instantly recognized the quality of his work. The response to Oleg’s art was immediate and he was able to take the first steps to financial and artistic independence.

OLEG'S STYLE

Russian icon painting is a basic and profound point-of-reference in Oleg’s work. The viewer will find religious imagery—golden halos, Madonnas, angels, and saints. Other typical icons include hearts, musical instruments, books, celestial beings, and flowers—symbols of beauty, delicacy, and spiritual development.

One of the most beautiful aspects of Oleg’s painting is his skillful rendering of faces, hands, and feet. His characters often communicate through the use of hand gestures rather than eye contact. Gestures are imbued with subtle meaning; a deep sense of shared experience is created through this control of body language.

His combination of geometric shapes and abstract patterns — often applied onto canvas in gold foil or gold leaf — is truly masterful. His characters’ faces evolve from flat, mask-like images to fully realized visages exuding intelligence and emotion. Their facial contours are delicately and softly molded.

To stand before an Oleg masterpiece is an experience you will not soon forget; to own one is a source of pride and privilege.
