Congratulations to Hunter Jay for winning Best in Show in the Traditional category of 6th Annual Skies Art Exhibition.

Hunter Jay reveals the wonder of the hidden world around us. He focuses on the geometry of the composition; the way the elements are arranged on the canvas. Often he finds that this becomes more important than the actual subject matter. His work embraces an admiration of simplicity and evokes a contemplative and peaceful place.

An acrylic painter, Hunter credits his outlook largely to the 1940 Walt Disney animated film “Fantasia,” which he first saw as a child. The fantastical world on that screen impacted him. He found he was interested in the settings for the characters in the film more than the characters themselves. He wanted to live in the depths of that magical world.

To this day, that is what he captures on canvas. The mystery and the exotic qualities of his work make it identifiable, with saturated hues. You’ll see close-up views of botanic life, but the ocean and its refracted light seize his imagination as well. That childhood experience in the movie theatre continues to fascinate him to this day, and is why his colors are so intense, vibrant and saturated.

Largely self-taught as a fine artist, Hunter Jay has an innate sense of composition that aligns with his background in graphic design, contributing to the overall illustrative impact of his work.
