Artwork by Yellena James: Flourishing

250 Vesey Street

Artist Yellena James’ ethereal forms and organic elements coexist and interact within a vibrant and limitless expanse. In her new original window mural, “Flourishing,” she seeks to remind viewers of the boundless wonder to be found beyond every window and wall. Nestled within the cityscape, the colorful terrain of her imaginary ecosystems reflects the voracity of life and its insistence to thrive, giving onlookers a vitalizing landscape in which to simultaneously rest and explore.


Yellena James grew up and attended art school in Bosnia and Herzegovina. She moved to the U.S. at age 18, earning her BA in painting and graphic design. Working primarily in pens, inks, markers, and acrylics, James’ combines complex abstract forms into dazzling images, her colorful arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines both floral and alien, organic and sci-fi. James has participated in shows nationally and internationally, including solo and illustration work for companies such as Apple, Adobe, Relativity Media, La Mer, Anthropologie, Swatch, and Moleskine, among others.
