James Bywood

James Bywood is an artist, illustrator and printmaker. Based in Leeds – West Yorkshire, his interest lies in recreating the British landscape using an expressionistic visual language.


James’s practice specialises in taking silkscreen printing techniques beyond their traditional commercial environment and using them to capture natural and man-made landscape.


James formed a love of The Lake District from his early years, when taken on family holidays to Keswick. Capturing the fells and lakes of the region, James adds his own take on these famous views through the use of colour and graphical elements.
