Jay MT & Silva are a street artist duo based in Melbourne Australia that has been doing artworks together since early 2020.
Jay MT has worked and studied for around thirteen years in different countries including Germany, the UK, Japan and Australia. Her range of expertise is varied and ranges from illustration and painting to animation film and large scale murals.
After winning several awards as a child & teenager Jay started her career at the age of 18 as an illustrator for one of Germany's leading book publishers; the storytelling side of her talent led her to enter into the world of animation two years later. She was fortunate to be able to specialise in the field of 2D hand-drawn animation in two of the most prolific places for this genre in the world - Tokyo and Bristol.
At the end of 2014, Jay's creative passion took her to Australia where she started to gain further experience in painting murals and large scale paintings. However, her artwork still retains a storytelling magical character to it.
Silva has been a passionate painter and marketer for a long time while living in Chile but only the last years in Australia dedicating himself professionally as a mural artist, his style is rougher with strong colours and more urban, including graffiti, characters and surreal creatures.
Alongside with urban style of painting Silva also has explored 3D-effect painting and digital creation of concept designs and digital artwork most known as NFT and owns a small gallery on opensea.com
