Jay Cabalu uses collage to mash up celeb images and pop culture memes
Jay Cabalu’s art education began at a young age when he learned to draw by flipping through his mother’s fashion magazines. Since then, 28-year-old Jay has been incorporating themes of celebrity and pop culture into his intricate portraits and collages. A self-described “pop artist,” Jay focuses on accessible themes in pop culture, but includes nuances and hidden details in every collage to provoke thought and conversation with his audience. An expressive young artist, Jay has the drive to eliminate all competition in sight. Catch him in episode 2 of Crash Gallery on Friday, Oct. 9!
