James Culleton is a Canadian contemporary multi-media artist and designer based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He specializes in drawing, sculpture, and furniture design. He also creates mural and chalkboard art, oil and acrylic on canvas, as well as water-jet steel sculpture, multi-media installations and has recorded five albums as a roots based singer songwriter. His work has been exhibited throughout Manitoba, across Canada and into the United States.
In 2016 Culleton partnered with the North Dakota Museum of Art to publish a book called McCanna House, a collection of drawings, paintings, songs and photographs that describe a magical place called McCanna House. Like in his other books Contouring Quebec and Lyrical Lines James Culleton uses blind contour drawing to describe his experiences. The setting is a turn of the century home located deep in the red river valley where Culleton explores the local history and unearths stories about family and farming beginning in the 1890s.
In 2011 Culleton published Lyrical Lines, delivering a visual who’s who of Canada’s roots music scene in some of Winnipeg’s most venerable music venues. The book highlights drawings he did of live performances, including the study drawings used to create the sculptures installed as part of the facade of the West End Cultural Centre.
In 2005 he received a grant from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Quebec to produce a collection of drawings where he used a GPS and blind contour drawing to rediscover his French roots while living in Quebec. From that collection of drawings he self published a bilingual book outlining the project called Contouring Quebec.
He has won awards from EQ3’s Generation Art from the Michaelle Jean Foundation, and most recently a Pinnacle award from The American Society of Furniture Designers. James currently teaches art at Forum Art Institute and the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
