Little attended the Memphis Academy of Art earning a B.F.A. The artist went to earn a M.F.A. from Syracuse University.

Little mixes his own colors using pure pigment. The artist also uses beeswax in many of his work.

In this clip we view a show featuring the work of James Little with our favorite art enthusiast, James Kalm:

Price range information: Sorry none available.

The use of pure pigment for color in this abstract makes for art that is very fun to look it. Many of his shapes remind me of classic game boards, a major activity for people before the invention of the internet.
