Jay Gitten is The Love Child – a self-taught painter who emerged onto the American art scene by selling his paintings and figure drawings on the streets of Soho. Hailing from Grenada originally, Jay Gittens came to New York equipped with his painting tools and a dream to refine his art and share it with the rest of the world.
The Love Child
Defining his painting style as Pop Abstraction, Jay Gittens relies on warm colors to stimulate and evoke pleasurable sensations in the viewer. Ever since he came to New York City in 2013, The Love Child was featured in a myriad of exhibitions across the United States, Europe, and Asia.
The Love Child
Some of the most prominent group exhibitions that paved The Love Child’s way to success include Group Shows at Dorian Gary Gallery and Lumas Gallery in New York in 2011, Street Savvy Showcase at Apostrophe NYC in Brooklyn in 2012, two sessions of Apostrophe NYC’s Subway Show in 2014 and 2015, ILLUZION Showcase at Bushwick Venue in 2015, and more.
His first solo exhibition was Ferris, Brooklyn, New York, in 2012 under his artist name (The Love Child). Three years later, he showcased his art at the Pure House called ‘Face to Face,’ again in Brooklyn, New York, in 2015. He had another exhibition in Contra Studios in New York City the same year. In 2017, he was featured in two solo exhibitions; Desaline at Mana Contemporary, Jersey City, NJ, and The Love Child & Cool Culture Charity at Okay Space, Brooklyn, New York.
His latest works will be featured in the Sad Songs Make Me Happy exhibition, hosted by Medium Exchange Gallery and curated by Seth Mathurin:
