Jim Marxen

Bright and Colorful Paintings

Jim Marxen’s paintings are bright and colorful, and reflect his conviction that humans must live sustainably within the environment and restore the places we’ve damaged. Jim’s work conveys optimism, while at the same time underscoring the need to ensure all people have the same opportunity to experience the beauty of this world.

Jim been painting on a semi-professional basis since 2007.  In that time, his work has been placed in more than 40 shows throughout Northern California, and sold hundreds of pieces to collectors. Jim has won numerous awards including Awards of Merit from the California State Fair.  His work has been included in the prestigious Crocker-Kingsley Show at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento.

Media coverage of Jim’s work include:

Sacramento News and Review stated: “Bright and fauvist, Jim Marxen’s landscapes bear an influence from the work of Gregory Kondos. But Marxen also textures his ’scapes with post-impressionist pointilistic brushstrokes. His urban scenes, which include Sacramento-area landmarks and snapshots of daily life, have the sharper outlines and harder edges of cities—but his palette of vivid hues doesn’t pale.

Sacramento Style Magazine said this about my work: “His colorful urban landscapes and figures nearly jump off of the canvas with rich vibrant hues.

Jim was one of a handful of Sacramento artists selected to create murals to enliven the Franklin Boulevard District.
