James Houra (27 March 1952 – 27 January 2020) was an Ivorian painter.
The former director of the école des beaux arts d'Abidjan, Houra is known for his checkerboard paintings. One of his paintings, Offrande, is on display at the Presidential Palace in Abidjan. Another one of his paintings was offered to former French Minister of the Interior, Claude Guéant, by a former Ivorian President, and is a source of controversy due to the fact that the painting was not returned at the end of French colonialism in the country.
Houra's works have been valued between 2000 and 25,000 euros.
James Houra died on 27 January 2020 at the age of 67.
