Jayemaich is an American street artist born in New Jersey who grew up in Brooklyn, NY and currently resides in Miami, FL. Jay’s artwork is based on empowering characters and creating a story-line with metaphorical content. Inspiration for his pieces often comes from the communities the artwork serves while having a global theme attached to the underlying message of empowerment.
Jay uses gray-scale in his work to invoke a more dramatic effect while also noting that the work can be complimented by surrounding aesthetics.
In a city that helped build America, hope is often in short supply. Jobs are scarce – violence, illiteracy, and crime are prevalent. Young people are being raised in an environment of poverty and despair. Anxiety, joblessness and poverty – all contributors to depression and domestic violence – are destroying families. Clearly, help is needed. For many, the Center for Hope is the beginning of a new path to recovery, offering access to counseling and mental health services, substance use treatment and recovery, housing assistance and referrals for food and furniture. The Center for Hope offers just that – hope for each new day that comes.
