JAY DAVIS - Jay Davis is an emerging, self-taught artist born and raised in Washington, DC. Jay discovered his love for art at the age of 8 when he created his first abstract piece that still hangs in the home of his proud parents.

Jay creates vivid abstract paintings with a contemporary flair, specializing in acrylics and textured art designs on canvas. He loves bold color, and enjoys using some very unique textures that gives his abstract work a powerful presence. Jay finds his inspiration in his many life experiences.

Growing up in a middle class home, Jay excelled in sports, especially soccer and basketball. Unfortunately he opted for a fast paced lifestyle which exposed him to adventure and risk as he witnessed crime, betrayal, separation and tragedy. This environment helped shape and develop his intense love for his craft.

Art became his refuge later in life and has now developed into his passion. Jay’s life experiences have given him a colorful outlook on life, which is vividly displayed in his work. A steady stream of friends and acquaintances along with word of mouth, have created quite a buzz around Jay’s art work. Corporations and private collectors up and down the east coast have commissioned his work and now he is proud to be able to share his talent with the world.


My Style is definitely all my own, and I love what I do.  My art comes from deep within my heart , mind and soul. Throughout life I have stored a wealth of personal experiences in my head and heart. My Work  becomes a open door to share with the world my thoughts and ideas. I envision textures first and wait for the perfect color to accent my thoughts. Some of my life's experiences prompt feelings of loneliness and I create abstract expressions, as demonstrated in "Abyss". Sometimes my playful side is a perfect medium for works like, "House Party" and "Bubble Gum". My work doesn't dictate one style because I  have endless ideas of life and I illustrate this with many colors, patterns and textures. Art moves my soul so much that sometimes I find myself awakened in the middle of the night with visions. Once I see the canvas I might be there for days. Once I get in "the zone", I am stuck, and completely obsessed with what I can see materialize into beautiful color. I hope my style moves my audience, and gives you a glimpse of who I am.... colorful, well shaped, with lots of texture.
