Jayson Atienza was born in Batangas City, Philippines, but grew up a world away in Jersey City, NJ. After finishing his degree at the School for Visual Arts in New York City, Jayson found himself working in one of the classic NYC industries: advertising. Jayson's work in ad design has won him recognition from a wide range of arts and advertising organizations, and has allowed him to start his own non-profit, P.A.I.N.T. (Philippine Artists Inspiring New Talent), dedicated to helping young Filipinos gain access to the arts.
