Maxwell Jay graduated in Fine Art Painting in 2000. In the aftermath of two hugely unsuccessful solo shows of paintings depicting dead pigs heads, he ran away to Scotland in 2002. There he spent his time painting, writing and being unemployed. Between then and now he has worked in a variety of dead-end jobs and nearly been married. He is known to give readings of his work in and around London, though infrequently. Maxwell Jay WILL write for room and board.
