“How to Know Thyself in One Hour or Less” is not about designing, decorating or proving how talented you are. This workshop is about doing what’s necessary to get to know who you really are, and putting it into your work. Through the power of the pencil, human interaction and more, James will introduce you to yourself and how to tap into the essence of your being to create your best work.
Who is James Victore?
James is an artist, author, and activist who teaches people how to illuminate their individual gifts in order to achieve personal greatness. James is widely known for his timely wisdom and impassioned views about design and its place in the world. At the helm of his independently run design studio, James continually strives to make work that is sexy, strong and memorable; work that tows the line between the sacred and the profane.
James’ work has been exhibited (twice!) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is represented in the permanent collections of museums worldwide including the Louvre and the Library of Congress. He has an Emmy, a gold and silver medal from the Art Directors Club, and a Grand Prix from the Brno Biennale amongst others.
His clients include Adobe, MailChimp, Starbucks, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Aveda, Time and Esquire Magazines, Moet & Chandon, Yohji Yamamoto and The City of New York. A monograph of his work was published by Abrams in 2010 titled, Victore or, Who Died and Made You Boss? Victore taught at the School of Visual Arts in NYC for more than 20 years. He lives, loves and works in Brooklyn.
