James Smith (aka The Waling Creative) is an artist based in Adelaide, South Australia. James is a self taught artist who is well known in the Adelaide community for my vibrant colour palette where his work stems from moments, conversation, thoughts and feelings in an expressive, spontaneous style and yet sometimes a simple bold piece of imagery that fits the empty space of the urban jungle. These images tend to be vibrant and playful at times as they share a small snippet of his life and tell the unique stories of himself where he was unable to reveal.
James has exhibited works in galleries and shows both locally and interstate. He has also worked and collaborated with local businesses across Adelaide painting murals, designed logos, produced custom wear as well as a limited edition clothing line for a sustainable clothing store in the CBD.
