James Pouliot di Lombardia is an American artist & photographer living a nomadic life in Paris, France and Napoli, Italy. While his photography work has been featured in international fashion publications such as a Vogue and L’Officiel, the self-taught artist uses his painting to explore both nature and consumer culture. His still life studies are described as “academic pop-art” and juxtapose traditional methods of painting with contemporary and often disposable subject matter. His landscapes on the other hand, breathe a sense of escapism - they export the viewer to sandy beaches laced with palm trees swaying in the wind.
