James M. Rizzi known better as JM Rizzi is a Dallas-based artist whose artwork is influenced by Abstract Expressionism, executed with a Neo-Contemporary twist. Born in Brooklyn, NY in 1975, JM Rizzi discovered his love for art at an early age. Shaped by the raw energy of the city and following in the footsteps of the pioneers of street art, Rizzi pursued a degree in Fine Art from the School of Visual Arts, graduating in 1997. In the years that followed, he took to the streets, adding his colorful interpretations to the urban landscape.
Establishing a strong name in both street art and fine art, JM Rizzi’s imagery has become iconic in his native New York City as well as Dallas, where he currently resides. With major commissioned projects around the globe, his work can be found in NYC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. With a determined statement on motion, scale and color, JM Rizzi composes a magical symphony of shapes and forms, all pulsating into one another. His paintings are both serious and sensual while never sacrificing the energy and fearless that he’s become known for. These are the works of a mature painter in his prime.
– I just love the amazing colors of JMR, it has got a very unique kind of enamel luster with sharp abstract lines and smooth shadings. A perfect combination of graffiti and expressionist painting, it´s like the best of both worlds, says Shai Dahan, curator of No Limit Street Art.
– The colors of JMR will really stand out in the streets of Borås. The pieces are really exciting and joyfull and I´m happy to bring more balance between imaginative and abstract art in No Limit, says Stina Hallhagen, project manager.
