A FORMER CONSTRUCTION WORKER has developed a new career as an artist.
James Howe, 41, spent 20 years balancing on scaffolding planks on construction sites. Former builder James Howe uses scaffold planks to create black and white images of Sir Winston Churchill, Freddie Mercury, Liam Gallagher, Mike Tyson, and NHS hero Capt Sir Tom Moore[/caption]
Now he uses them to create black and white images of Sir Winston Churchill, Freddie Mercury, Liam Gallagher, Mike Tyson, and NHS hero Capt Sir Tom Moore.
James, of Skegness, Lincolnshire, began by copying a Banksy print while recovering from an injury ten years ago. After selling a Liam Gallagher painting during lockdown, he decided to pursue art full-time. “I’ve never had any art lessons or studied art,” James said. “I’m completely self-taught..”
“I enjoy painting on wood, and I purchase all of my boards from a local company that has dents, broken corners/edges, grind marks, and rust mаrks.
“It’s wonderful to be аble to do something I enjoy while аlso being аble to spend time with my children every night.” ”
