Jay Taylor pulls apart the tradition of painting. With his signature style, he blends cultural references to contemporary life: graphics, gaming, digital influences, a still life or a portrait. He merges modern with tradition, present and past. During the process these initial reference points then give way to mark-making beyond control. He comes to painting after a hugely successful career as an illustrator for clients including the Guardian, Tatler, Ted Baker & more.
