James de Blas – The Psychiatric Superhero

James de Blas ‘The Psychiatric Superhero’

The art of finalist in the Blake prize for religious art, mental health advocate & artist James de Blas from Kapunda SA.
This exhibition delves into the colourful & mythological world of schizophrenia. James is an innovative painter, who uses narrative to give meaning to his paintings.

A powerful series of art works that visually display an archetypal journey, from a state of being cursed to one of liberation. Through the madman’s trials and tribulations he becomes his own healer and the healer/redeemer of his planet. The displayed works form the illustrations of a full colour graphic novel that brings the light warrior ‘Psychiatric Superhero’s’ deep inner struggles out into the open in a highly imaginative and haunting saga.
