Harry Potter has a wand, and James ‘Jimbot’ Demski has a paintbrush.
And with it, he creates magic.
Jimbot has a gift for capturing the magic of birds in a fun, playful and creative way.
He lives in Milwaukee, WI with his wife, daughter, two dogs and possibly a captive robot he keeps in his basement.
I first discovered Jimbot’s work in 2015 at the Rotofugi Gallery for his show ‘Birds and the Bots.’
He quickly became one of my favorite artists.
You can see all of Jimbot’s works from The Rotofugi Gallery exhibit here.
I enjoyed his artwork so much and could not settle on just one piece, so I bought three pieces from this show.
What I enjoy most about Jimbot’s work is the way he cleverly works robots into his art to illustrate how a robot would experience encountering nature for the first time.
And how nature and technology can exist in peaceful harmony.
He masterfully uses stencil, numbers, pencil, and ink to add to his artistic narrative.
Jimbot’s choice of bird subjects, Chickadees, House Wrens, and Cardinals are among some of my favorite birds
I enjoy Jimbot’s work, and I was excited to feature him as the first artist profile on intoBirds.
