Here is my world
Originally from El Salvador, Jair Garay’s passion for drawing began at an early age. Inspired by his father’s artwork, painting became an early obsession, followed closely by his love of music.
Throughout his life, that passion has not wavered, and creation – whether music, drawing or painting – is at the heart of who he is.
Jair is a natural talent, who initially developed his techniques by simply drawing. Using coloured pencils mixed with markers, his early works are bright and vibrant. Later as a young teenager, he studied three years of technical drawing which helped him hone his skills, learning to use professional tools and apply new techniques. At 15, Jair met a colleague from CENAR, the conservatory of arts in El Salvador, who introduced him to the power of acrylics, and through a shared love of art, they became best friends (RIP). About the same age, Jair’s passion for creating music was also deepening – a passion that to this day remains his biggest inspiration for his art.
Since immigrating to Canada at the age of 20, Jair has continued to create and share his love of both painting and music - making art an integral part of his life. His projects have included painting for plays, creating a series of acrylic paintings as a fundraiser for his church, and creating a 4ft by 8ft painting for a White Oaks Secondary School graduation, to name but a few. He is an ambitious painter who is happy to be working towards an exhibit that will be open in early spring.
His dream? To travel the world, sharing his passion for painting and music, and to dedicate his life to creating art.
“I want to leave something behind in this world so that long after I’m gone, people can still see the beautiful world the way that I do, leaving my thoughts on canvas for centuries to come.”

Painting in London streets!
Putting some colors and inspirations in my canvas while enjoying of live music, coffee and good company, it was fun!. Working with London Arts Council is an amazing experience, people stopping by and witnessing an art piece in process... an indescribable experience.
