Marvin Jay Cohen better known by his broadcast name Jay Marvin is a self-taught painter, writer, and best known (1999-2004) as a popular and controversial liberal talk show host on WLS 890 AM radio in Chicago. He is also a fascinating human being with a lot on his mind. (and one of my favorite people) Jay describes his art style as, " … open, raw, and filled with emotion, and revolution. The days of the "outsider" or "self taught" artist as mental patient are at an end. Art should be used as a weapon to smash the boredom of everyday life!" Marvin's work has been featured nationally as well as internationally most recently at the Inspired Art Fair in London England.
"Jay Marvin inspired me to start painting in 2003. He painted one of my album covers for the record: "Borderland."
He carries the Cobra Art tradition forward…a wild colorist. A a modern Fauve!"
