James Straffon

James Straffon is a London-based fine artist, who explores the relationship between the natural world, and the urban environment. Over a number of years he has created a vibrant street art 'safari', within an expanding quarter of north London, exposing residents and visitors to a snapshot of diversity and adventure. 

By introducing a broad array of species, he aims to promote the concept of integration, alongside a more vital theme; that of endangerment and the threat to global ecosystems. His large-scale artworks span countries such as India, Madagascar, Africa, New Zealand, the frozen north, and South America, as well as indigenous species. He is keen to foster an ongoing environment of free-to-view imagery, which engages the younger generation, and those who might experience a lack of inclusion and opportunity, within the arts.
