Artist & Author
(In true biography fashion, we’re going into third-person tense… hold on, it’s gonna get weird…)
Jay Fortune was destined to become an artist and author.
His first artistic and writing efforts were unappreciated and seen as an act of graffiti at the young age of three when he began doodling on the staircase wall with a biro. Not content with his first efforts, he shifted down to the next stair and continued. At stair five he was rumbled by his mother. This early wall art eclipsed Banksy by some 30 years. Jay says he may have been the inspiration for Banksy, but this is widely refuted.
It’s also not true.
