Taiwanese-American artist, James Jean, fuses contemporary subjects with aesthetic techniques inspired by ancient traditions.
Slingshot Aurum is a limited sculpture edition of 50. In a quietly grotesque reading of Hammurabi’s law of reciprocity, the sculpture’s subject removes his eye and takes aim at an unidentified target.
James Jean was born in 1979 in Taipei, Taiwan, and moved to New Jersey, USA with his family at a young age. He now lives and works in Los Angeles.
