Bold and unique perspectives are a hallmark of Jay’s original paintings. With his exciting combinations of colours, patterns, light and reflection, he elevates everyday objects and familiar nature & urban scenes, to the extraordinary. There’s passion and dedication in every brush stroke.
Jay Favot is driven to strive harder and better in his art every year. His inspirations have come from a variety of sources, including Ontario and Quebec landscapes and cityscapes, as well as taking a fresh view of the ordinary moments of life, with both people and things. “To see somebody make that connection to your art is always great”, claims the artist, “It has been a conscious effort to vary subjects and style of art over the years”.
Jay received some great recognition this year. He was the recipient of the Peg Forbes Memorial Award at the 39th Annual La Cloche Art Show (summer 2016) for his painting “The Crack”.
As well, his painting "Above Killarney" was awarded First Place People's Choice Award at the 2016 "In the Spirit of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven" exhibition at the prestigious Perivale Gallery in Spring Bay, Manitoulin Island, Ontario.
Jay’s artwork can be found in many private collections in Canada.
Jay is represented by Perivale Gallery.
