Jay Alders

Jay  was born in 1973 in New Jersey, USA. He has been pursuing his lifelong dream of becoming a thriving professional artist since he was a child. His outlook on success is best described by him in a recent interview with ESPN, “Some people wait around for opportunity to come knocking. I prefer to just build my own door and open it.

Jay’s work is held in private collections around the world. Organisations like Emergen-C, Billabong, Endless Games, Donavon Frankenreiter, Ted Shred’s and Original Long Boards all have licensed Jay’s Art for their internationally distributed product lines.

“Sometimes, when I paint, I just see the image and almost trace it as if my brain were projecting it on the canvas. Other times, I have no clue what’s going to happen next and it’s just exciting to be a witness to my own brush while I humble myself with learning and screwing up.

Then there are moments I zone out hypnotically and it’s the most relaxing activity I can participate in. However, it’s not always the process of painting itself that’s the most rewarding, it’s being able to bring to life and share with others the weird things that float around my head.”

 

 

 

Prestigious media outlets & organizations like Surfer Magazine, Fuel TV, Surfline.com, SIMA, Line Up Magazine, Longboard Magazine, Eastern Surf Magazine, FHM Magazine, Penthouse Magazine, Curl Magazine, RagMag & Go Outside Magazine all showcased Jay’s artistic endeavours.
