James Deeb holds an MFA from Western Michigan University. His art has its philosophical roots in texts like Friedrich Nietzsche’s The Birth of Tragedy, the work of German Expressionists, and the writings of J.G. Ballard and Charles Bukowski. Deeb refers to this artistic strand as the dystopian minority opinion. website
