Meet Jay Resh
I grew up in Bronx, New York during the most violent years in the cities history. From the cocaine boom in the 70’s to the introduction of Crack in the 80’s, New York City had become a war zone. Cars burned throughout the borough, as rubble-filled lots, located behind many apartment complexes, doubled as local playgrounds. For every building that was occupied, it seemed there was at least one that was boarded up and abandoned or had been set ablaze and left to collapse in on itself. Nothing in that grey and broken place was beautiful. It was where I grew up, and it’s why I love creating beautiful things today.
