Ben Jay is a spray can portrait artist who has lived in Pacific Beach, San Diego, for the better part of the last decade. Ben’s large-scale pieces come to life by combining his remarkable fine motor skills with wild color schemes and culturally-relevant subjects.

A creative visionary living with epilepsy, Ben’s art has evolved from being a bellwether for his own neurological healing, and grown into Blank Space Removal which, among other endeavors, provides portraiture plus artistic vision for local and nationwide agencies alike, such as the San Diego Epilepsy Foundation, the Bones Brigade Experience, and the George Floyd Memorial Center. 

When he doesn’t have a can of spray-paint in his hands, you can find Ben skating and juggling simultaneously along the boardwalk in Pacific Beach.
