The Passion Turned Into An Obsession By Jay Ferguson
The art of Jay Ferguson started out as a high school hobby, turned into a full time career for me. Painting has always been an escape from reality for him, in his youth he would lose himself for hours painting heavy metal album covers on his friends jackets.
“The passion I had for darker artwork turned into an obsession. That temporary escape soon became a necessity of life, a way to pour my heart and soul onto canvas,” he said.
Jay has been creating art full time for 20 years. This has enabled him to concentrate all his time and effort on one project at a time. Over the years, his works have won many awards, and been published in a few magazines. But still the ultimate reward is turning a customers blank canvas, into a piece of art.
“I have always had a flair for dark imagery, from my school drawings, to the murals, and portraits that I do now. That’s not to say I am limited to that, I take pride in being able to work in different styles, and enjoy the challenges of something new.”
“Thankfully, I have aligned myself with creative people in the art world, custom industry, and loyal customers who give me the creative freedom to paint my style of art. The journey of an artist is never ending, every piece is one more step towards a constantly evolving destination.”
Joy has been fortunate over the years to work with many high profile clients. From Metallica’s James Hetfield, numerous NHL goalies, the Canadian Olympic Ski Team, Harley Canada, along with numerous corporate clients.
“My works can be seen around the globe, on television, and in print. I’ve had the honor of being featured in numerous publications. Revolution Motorcycle Mag, Motorcycle Mojo, MX Performance, and Barnetts, to name just a few. As well as being featured on Biker build-off, Biker TV, and Motorcycle Life Television. I hope to add you to my list of clients.”
