James Jean Adds ‘Bath’ to His Pantheon of Characters

When it comes to prints, James Jean doesn’t cut corners. Beautifully crafted, each layer contains a myriad of elements that the Taiwanese-American artist imbues with symbolism. Bath is no different — a new character that Jean has added to his pantheon of figures, including Slingshot, Maze, Descendent, and Woodcutter.

Bath depicts a young girl who gazes out to the viewer. One to which the artist states emerges “from the vessel of the mind, entwined in her own noodle-like hair.” The girl is surrounded by an aura of prismatic mushrooms that carries an air of transcendence.

Following the craftsmanship of Jean’s past work, the print will feature a number of ornate details, such as sculptural glass-like details and enhancements, along with crystalline finishes and holographic linework. The print will be available for $500 USD via the artist’s online store for 24 hours starting at 8am PST on Wednesday, January 26 and ending at 7:59am PST on Thursday, January 27. Bath is limited by the number of prints sold during those 24 hours and never reprinted.
