About the work
Jim Drain
American, b. 1975
Follow

In vigorously colorful mixed-media works, Miami-based artist Jim Drain uses saturated psychedelic hues and patterns in a combination of formal exploration, art history, and popular culture. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Drain attended the Rhode Island School of Design in the late 1990s, where he became involved with an art collective that inspired his extensive mixing of mediums. Following school, Drain introduced his love for discarded materials to a new skill—knitting—and is now best known for his stuffed and sewn sculptures that incorporate fabric scraps with machine knit-patterns. In general, Drain’s works are a melange of many parts; fun-house mirrors, plastic easter eggs, found items, and printed ephemera bearing referential imagery.
