T. JAY SANTA ANA, ABSTRACT ARTIST
I am a gay Filipino Scorpio INFJ and I like painting energy.
I like vibration. I like movement. I imagine what the soul sees when it travels outside of the body. I like translating experiences into shapes, lines, and colors that insist upon interrupting the best part of a story. I make my mark with moments using the energy of a conversation, the vibe of a drive up the coast, and with the emotions that rush toward me in greeting the Pacific every time I return home.
I have a weird fascination with memory, nostalgia, and communing with past iterations of myself to inform my work today, the combination of which have become the line/s in my paintings (time + space = line). If you are interested in the possibilities of what this can look like, please check out my work.
