James Jirat Patradoon’s work is informed by a wealth of cultural references. From 80s aesthetics and 90s fashion, to comic books and tattoo design, he renders his ideas in flashes of neon and monochrome. 

Creating captivating gifs, murals and digital artwork, Patradoon’s arcane obsession with the occult seeps through every pore of his pieces. Fusing Japanese anime with pop-horror and searing, luminous colours, Patradoon’s work is clean and graphic in production, with a sultry humour sometimes missed at first pass. 

Patradoon often throws layers of meaning into his imagery, exploring humanities depths and fractures in his pieces and creating his own hyperreal infernal paradise. 

His standalone style and breakneck production speed has led him to work with high profile international clientele, including collaborations with Facebook, HBO, RVCA, Nike and Microsoft.
