“My art tells the story of my heart...” – jay Dontae My art is an expressive free form platform for me to tell stories of what I like to call "distorted realism". I work in a variety of mediums including acrylic painting, mixed media, digital art, fashion design and poetry, and I have aspirations to create my own cartoon, short film and video game, among other creative avenues. As much as I’d like to say my style is solely my own, it draws from tidbits of Donald Glover, Akira Toriyama, Pablo Picasso, Hebru Brantley, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Tyler the Creator and all the other great artists that have impacted me in my 25 years on this planet. When’s it’s all said and done I hope that I was BOLD & AUTHENTIC. Instagram @jaydontae
