Native to Brooklyn, New York, Jae Martin is a self-taught pop artist who creates pieces with graffiti undertones inspired by the fast pace of city living. Jae produces pieces that are far from the ordinary. Influenced greatly by the graffiti art style, he incorporates it into his work for due respect. To capture what he feels in the moment, Jae completes most of his pieces in only one day by using acrylics, sharpie oil markers, spray paint, and anything else he can get his hands on.
With the passing of his father, a great influence on his life, Jae decided failure is not an option. Many anecdotes shared by his father are used to add depth to the artwork. By aligning himself with his close friends to help make his mark on the world, Jae wants to make sure that his two young boys have someone to look up to with pride.
