About The Artist

James Mertke is an acrylic painter from San Jose, California. His still life paintings feature a variety of seemingly ordinary items that are brought to life through his use of color. Subjects such as fruits, candies, and items of nostalgia are prominent in his work. 

While James always loved painting, his practice became more defined after finishing a painting challenge and documenting it online for over three months. After completing 100 days of daily painting, James continues to paint as much and as often as he can. It has become part of his daily routine, and he enjoys every moment of it.

James’s work has been on display in various galleries and spaces in California and exists in collections across the US, Europe, and Australia.
