From me to you
Hello there, hello YOU
I am very happy you are here right now. If you have a minute I quickly want to tell you why I do what I do.
Since a young age, I have been interested in making people happy. Be it with a smile or with a nice gesture.
My passion has always been to create stories about a new world. It just happens to be that I loved drawing, painting, photography, designing and doing music.
Any form of Art where I could create and make people happy with. I realized that the better the communication of the Art piece, the better it was understood by people.
So if you asked me: Jay, why do you do what you do?
It would simply be: To make people happy and uplift them in their daily life.
I Aim to Inspire and Excite
What story do you want to tell?
Inspired by the world around me and by people like you – I create unique stories that can instil emotions and feelings of excitement, awe and wonder.
Your Story Starts Here
I am changing the way people see and buy art.
Art is not just galleries, silent browsing and interpretations.
Art can also be the start of a journey - a journey that gives you the freedom to express yourself and tell a story all your own using unique works of art that speak to you.
My collections of paintings, prints, accessories and lifestyle items offer something for every taste and every piece of art adds a new angle or element to your ever-changing story.
Your happiness is an Artform
Add a unique touch of Art to your life and to your home. Step out of your comfort zone and start living the life you always wanted.
Travelling & Exhibitions
As an artist, I got to do and see a lot of amazing things all around the world, travelling for new works and exhibiting in galleries, museums and in public.
I am represented by 3 different galleries in 3 different countries – Switzerland, Italy and Sweden.
My collectors come from every corner of the world. And each one to this very day is happy with my works – some rehang their collections, but keep mine up. "There is something special about your works Jay that makes me happy." as they say.
I did a great collaboration with Sephora Make-up where I created paintings made of their best makeup. They have been shown all over the place and it was a huge success.
A Swiss Fashion label commissioned me to design two of their collections, which were shown at fashion shows and fairs and sold worldwide.
Besides Magazines and Newspapers, Italian TV has shown my works and made a behind the scenes / behind the works showing.
Sculptural works for the City of Zurich (Switzerland’s biggest City)
Commissioned High-End Sculpture for Bank Zimmerberg
(a 200-year-old private bank)
Both sculptures are seen by millions of people in public every year.
My goal was to change the whole environment with them - to create Art on a big scale.
My cultural background
My cultural background - directly from the 80ies
I was born in 1980 - right at a time when new trends have been starting to pick up.
Who doesn’t remember the 80ies? Even if you are of younger age, you have seen revivals all over - be it Street art, Graffiti, Fashion, Furniture – you name it!
Graffiti and my message to the world
At the age of 16 (way into the 90ies), I began my career as a graffiti artist – using the city as my canvas. Being troubled by the condition the world was in and the pale walls of concrete, I decided it was time for a change.
A change in terms of message, colour and style. I saw my works as strong messages to the world, a voice for change.
While many of my peer’s graffiti artworks were wiped clean, mine remained for years to come - and even taken under restoration after being under attack from local taggers.
I understood that my works had a positive message and created happiness, and were kept there because of that. I used words like “hope” “new beginnings” as my graffiti messages.
Breakdance and Skateboarding
While doing Graffiti, i got into Breakdancing and Skateboarding - I was a maker and loved doing things. And those disciplines were a perfect match for me.
In my twenties, I discovered my own music, so I became a DJ and producer of mainly HipHop Music. It all started with 2 turntables and got to the point where I produced tracks and albums, some even made it in the charts for a while.
I am proud of my early life and creations – i never stopped dreaming and doing.
And i will never stop – and neither should you.
