Jay Toor is a Vancovuer, Canada based multi-disciplinary artist focusing on digital visual arts.
He likes to define himself as "an instrument of entropy, attempting articulation of the unknown."
In his work and life he constantly seeks active engagement with what he does not understand. His curiosity compels him to create.
Toor's work ranges and fluxes between contemporary surreal and abstract-figurative. His art is the result of him trying to make sense of the world around him. He is always trying to abstract the essence of something, some idea, memory, emotion or impulse in order to gain a better understanding of it or to just share it with others. Throughout his work we can see his curiosity and fascination with what makes us who we are.
One could say that he is trying to see the bigger picture from his field of view. He creates art pieces in various media, which act like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Like a child excited to see the whole picture, he wants more of these pieces and so he creates. Jay Toor's work is exploratory in nature.
