YG5 | Visual Artist, Founder/Creative Director
New York, United States
Jayson Atienza is an award-winning visual artist and creative director who splits his time between Asia and the US. He graduated from the School of Visual Arts in NYC majoring in Advertising and Graphic Design. Jayson's passion is painting, and he applies his signature style worldwide to an array of traditional and non-traditional canvases, alike. Jayson's work combines dynamic colors with strong line detail, and his designs spread organically across whatever he paints.
Jayson was born in Batangas, Philippines and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey. He started drawing at age 5, first collaborating with his father, who was deaf and mute. Visual language became the most important way he communicated from an early age, and Jayson feels lucky that he can continue to communicate this way with strangers around the world through his art.
Commercially, Jayson’s clients include, Nike, Jordan Brand, NBA, ESPN, MINI, GAP, Stokke, Ray-Ban, Hennessy, Chivas and Heineken among others.
