James Reeve b. 1939

After studying at Accademia de Bellas Artes in Madrid during the 1960s, Reeve travelled extensively, living and working in Haiti, Uganda, Madagascar, India, the Australian Outback, Guatemala, Jordan and Yemen.

 

From 1992 to 2009, he was based in Mexico - first in a self-built house/studio in the jungle at Xilitla and then, from 1993, in a tenement block in the historic centre of Mexico City. His work was purchased and collected by Charles Saatchi. 

 

He now lives and works on Exmoor, Somerset.
