Born in Australia, Jay Salton began his love affair with digital art at a very early age.
His desire and resolve to learn as much as he could led him to Qantm College in Brisbane, where he graduated with a Diploma of Interactive Digital Media.
From there, Jay quickly gained recognition by exhibiting on various websites such as View Bug, ArtQuid and Fine Art America.
Utilising the power of a high-end computer Jay acquired, he has recently refocused his energies on large format fine art.
Here he wields his imagination, strength and grace, turning out images that bespeak his love of digital fantasies and author Robert Bradbury’s tales of the Matrioshka brain.
His detailed works transport the viewer to another dimension, where humans live out their wildest fantasies.
My journey so far has been one full of accomplishments that I am proud of. From having my artwork displayed in a gallery, to winning awards, my artwork has always spoken about what is on my mind and takes people on a journey of their own.
Even though I am an artist who creates surreal and abstract worlds, there was a time I had no creativity and was even fearful of my own shadow. When I discovered digital art I was given the tools to turn my vision into reality.
That ended when I turned to drugs at the age of 16, which inevitably spiralled me down the wrong path. In my darkest hour I was lost and then diagnosed with schizophrenia at 18. When my uncle gave me a job at his glass studio, I found a sliver of hope.
I became an assistant glass blower learning a 2000 year old craft and finally found myself developing my passion for art again.
I decided to return to my fascination of creating digital art, learning the ropes on Photoshop, 3D’s Max and Bryce to express my creativity and find peace in my world.
I’m always keen to see photos of your products featuring my designs – please share them with #JaySaltonArt hashtag. :)
