Initially known for his highly realistic style and technical approach to art, Jay Koka’s relatively small and tightly rendered gouache works were replaced in the mid-90s by very large format canvases with a notable disregard for detail and an emphasis on explorations in texture, form, and color. A feature and poster artist for many international automotive events such as Meadow Brook Concours, Bloomington Gold, and Reading Ferrari Concours, his work has been extensively reproduced and has received numerous awards, including the Lincoln Award at Pebble Beach and the Stanley Wanlass Award at Meadow Brook. Koka has also been a long standing member and on the Board of Directors of the Automotive Fine Arts Society. Creatively restless and endlessly experimenting in style and media, Koka continues to explore two style extremes, realism and impressionism.
