About The Art of DionJa'Y

ARTIST DIONJA'Y biography

Dion j. Pollard aka artist DionJa’Y was born in Washington DC in poverty. He remembers he and his brothers having to eat leftovers from the local Gino’s chicken place because food was very little at home. He remembers having to attend school with holes in his pants and shoes and being teased because of it by other kids. But the one factor that kept him going was his artistic talent. Dionja'y started drawing at the age of 7, but took his talent seriously around the age of 13. He saw his brother drawing from comic books one day and decided to try his hand at it. DionJa’Y exceeded at drawing from what he saw and decided to start creating from his minds eye and on a more realistic level. Dionja'y’s style is in detail. He started drawing in pencil, but soon graduated to other mediums. DionJa’Y found his love in acrylic paintings, oil paintings, pastel paintings, pencil, ink and dabbles in digital painting(a painting process using a digital stylus as your paint brush). He loves the textures of oil and acrylic, the raw sketchiness of pencil and pastels and the uncontrollable flow of watercolors and inks.

When Dionja'y was in high school his art teacher gave him a scholarship to Maryland Art Institute in the 11th grade. Home life made it hard for him to continue. However, it did not matter because God gave him a gift. God given talent they call it.

Later on DionJa’Y attended the Academy of Art University to add the extra punch to his works and make contacts in the art world. A family issue only allowed him to attend one year. Yet god's blessing still flowed through his veins. It didn't stop him from growing and following his artistic calling. Dionja'y's paints to wow those who buy and view his work. In his work DionJa’Y paints to make things right in the world. Where someone is hurting, he paints them smiling. Where DionJa’Y sees destruction he paints happiness. DionJa’Y’s goal is to paint to correct any negativity in the world through his work. That’s why he steers away from painting war, pain and tears. Dionja'y's work celebrates life, happiness and hope. He seeks his own style which varies in many ways, but still gets his vision across. His works can be found at Annie's art gallery in Clinton Maryland, Gotta Have It Artworks in California, Black Art Depot and his main website www.theartofdionjay.com.

Some of DionJa’Y’s protégés are artist Larry Poncho Brown, Charles Bibbs, Paul Goodnight, Kadir Nelson, WAK and John Holyfield. Their styles differ, but peak DionJa’Y’s interest with their style and movement in their pieces. He is working to build the success they have amassed through his work.
