About Jay Walker

Jay Walker is a Philadelphia based multi-disciplinary artist, creating tape installations, mixed media painting/drawings, and carved sculptures. Jay’s work involves observing and developing the dynamics of pattern and morphing them into his own designs. His work is regularly site-specific, allowing room for inspiration from the space itself, as it interacts with and stirs his artistic vision. Jay finds freedom in starting with one idea, initially drawing from color, form, and varied aesthetic choices, allowing the subject matter to emerge. He taps into the identity of culture, incorporating his fascination with archetypes and exploring who they are, why they exist, and what they embody.
