Artist Spotlight: Jay Talbot of Jaybo Art

June 13, 2017

I'm no art connoisseur, but I know great art when I see it.


Shortly after we created Demystifly's Instagram page less than a year ago, Jay Talbot's "Jayboart" page was one of the first artist pages I came across. Clean, concise, creative, and downright impressive, his work instantly had my attention. Jay is way beyond talented and it's clearly evident in all of his work!



I recently reached out to Jay to provide us with more background information as well as some samples we could share with our readers. Jay sent me the following write-up (down below) as well as a few awesome examples of his artwork. Be sure to visit both his website and Instagram page (also below) for MUCH more eye candy.....Enjoy!

"I'm Jay Talbot, 26 years old, and I'm in my 3rd year as a full-time fish artist. I was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina. I'm an avid fly fisherman mainly targeting redfish, but I make sure to take a couple trips each year to Florida to fly fish for tarpon. Don't worry, if I see a nice pond that I have access to I will fish all day for bass and bream. I was living in Charleston for the last year and a half so that I could be closer to the redfish and the fly fishing community there, but recently moved back to Columbia. Columbia is a better fit for me right now because the cheaper cost of living allows me to travel more. My dream is to travel the world and fish—but I mean who's dream isn't that? (haha)


Being a full-time fish artist means that I wear several hats. By trade, my main focus is to draw and paint custom commissions for people. I draw flies, a person's fish of a lifetime, funky fish, dog portraits, and also sell decals and shirts on my website. In addition, I do some graphic design work for other companies or even sell them art to use on their clothing. Finally, I've spent the last 6 months learning how to screen print and recently have invested in a professional screen printing press. This will allow me to start screen printing shirts for any companies that need a screen print guy."
