Jay West Is Generation Y's Most Important Visual Artist

4 years ago181 views

Harlem native and contemporary artist Jay West is quickly gaining recognition as one of the most promising visual artists of Generation Y.

During our conversation, we learned some interesting things about the NY native and his craft, including how his journey started.
