After some attention as a book illustrator in the late nineties, Ohio-based artist James Oberschlake returned to school and received his MFA from the University of Cincinnati in 2011. He is the founder and director of an online resource for American figurative art called Figure50, which features one artist from every state in the U.S. on a rotating basis. His time is currently divided between managing Figure50, painting nearly full time, and exploring the natural surroundings along the Ohio River. James recently returned from an extended visit to his wife’s home country, Thailand, and suspects that the strange sights there will begin to filter into his new work.
