Price range information: Sorry none available.

For much of his work Wolanin works with acrylic and resin on panel.

Wolanin often works with the figure as it was seen in commercial ads from the 1960’s and 1970’s. His goal is to transport the viewer back to a more innocent and candy coated time.

Below a preview to a 2017 show that featured Wolanin and the artist Jane Maxwell. Wolanin’s art is shown at the beginning of the clip:

James Wolanin has a great eye for design. The artist always looks to create interesting visual patterns using clothes. The artist also does an outstanding job of painting water.  I find his style of painting water to be similar to the British master David Hockney.
