James Victore

Author, Designer, Filmmaker and Firestarter

"Your work is a gift and the world is waiting for it."

James Victore is a firestarter. And the fire he wants to start is in you.

He’s an artist and designer whose aim is to help you find your voice, doing wow work and building a life that inspires. He will devastate your limits. And show you how to win.

His paintings of expressionist designs can be seen on ceramics, surfboards, billboards and supermodels. Recently described as “part Darth Vader, part Yoda,” Victore is widely known for his timely wisdom and impassioned views about design and its place in the world. He expresses these views and teachings through his numerous lectures, workshops, and writings.

At the helm of his independently run design studio, James continually strives to make work that is sexy, strong and memorable; work that toes the line between the sacred and the profane. This work has been exhibited (twice!) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is represented in the permanent collections of museums across the globe. He has won numerous design awards including an Emmy and gold medals from the Art Directors Club.

James taught at the School of Visual Arts in NYC for over 20 years. He lives, loves and works in rural Texas.
