James Brown was born in Los Angeles in 1951 and now lives in Merida, Mexico. Already, in 1978, the Gemeentemuseum in Arnheim, The Netherlands, gave him his first institutional one-man show. Since then, his work has been exhibited in a number of important American and European museums. Recently, the contemporary art museum in Oaxaca and the Diego Rivera-Anaguacalli museum in Mexico paid tribute to him with the organisation of two major exhibitions.
