During a visit to Atlanta in 1999, Jim Kopp saw an exhibit at the High Museum featuring well known Georgia artist Howard Finster and was inspired. He taught himself, experimenting with found objects, wood and paint. The result is a decidedly primitive, intuitive style as opposed to realism or details.
Over the more than 20 years he’s worked at his craft, Kopp has developed a signature style and look resulting in his work being collected across the U.S., Canada, Europe and as far away as Australia. A few of his paintings even appeared on an episode of NBC’s “Chicago P.D.” A handful of his pieces were featured in an issue of WRPD Magazine, a fashion, art and photography magazine in Rome.
When Kopp met Howard Finster in 2000, Howard told him, “Don’t you worry about what others think of your art, just keep painting!” Jim thinks about that simple statement almost every day.
