I’m James Farrell, my nickname Fazz comes from school where “Fazz” was short for Farrell.

Whilst at school, at around the age of 8, I discovered, fell in love with, and so began to teach myself  calligraphy. 

After studying Mechanical Engineering and working in various fields, I found the “pointed pen” (my current style of calligraphy) and around 10 years ago began putting all my learned skills in Engineering, love of music, physics and science in general into coming up with new and contemporary forms of pointed pen. 

I produce works of art around the subjects which interest me the most, largely being science, the natural world, music.

All of my works are for sale in their original form and are signed.

I think it is important to try to push the boundaries of the art that you are involved in, to try new ways of doing things and to look at lettering in a slightly different way.

I do accept commissions.

I have had exhibitions in:
Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, in Mexico City, International Exhibition “Kaligrafist” at the Design Centre of Istanbul, 2017, International Exhibition of Calligraphy at the Design Centre of Ankara, 2019.

Some of my works and interviews, have been published in calligraphy and typography publications, such as: Bound and Lettered, Bookseller, Scripsit, The Washington Calligraphers Guild Journal, Scripta The Magazine of Philadelphia Calligrapher’s Society and Artist’s Blok Magazine Special Edition, Typography, Letters and Penmanship issue.

I do hope that my work brings you joy and happiness. If there are any questions that you wish to ask me, please leave a message and I’ll be delighted to get back to you.
