James Springall is a pop art provocateur. Armed with a scalpel and glue, he takes found imagery out of context to create alternate narratives, often employing satire to make social commentary.

His work has been shown at the Royal Academy of Arts, Saatchi Gallery and across Europe. He has been featured by publications like AnOther, Elephant and Huck, undertaken commissions for brands like VICE, Rough Trade and Noble Rot, and is profiled in The Age of Collage 3 (Gestalten, Berlin, 2020).

He has curated two exhibitions of Contemporary Collage - Tribute to Viborg for the Viborg Museum, Denmark, and The International Weird Collage Show for Jealous Gallery, London.

British, b. 1977. Lives and works in Bergerac, France.
