Jay Bautista has been in the face and body painting industry for 11 years now. He started at Disney and Universal Studios working for Enjoy Your Face Inc., the world's largest face painting company. After a few years of 40 hours a week of non-stop face painting, he developed his skills enough to start his own company. Within a year he had a booth at a local attraction in Orlando as well as six more booths set up at all the major night clubs. Jay has done an array of gigs including Fantasy Fest in Key West, The White Party in Miami, and most recently the Face and Body Art International Convention as an instructor.
The Orlando Museum of Art took notice of his work and invited him to do live gallery paintings for their events on multiple occasions. Jay can be seen in the Creative Facepainting book featuring some demos and "masterpieces".
Currently, Jay can be seen on FABA Tv.com as an online instructor for the face and body art community.
