Artist Statement ARTIST DIONJA'Y biography

DION J. POLLARD AKA ARTIST DIONJA'Y WAS BORN IN WASHINGTON DC. DIONJA'Y STARTED DRAWING AT THE AGE OF 13. HE SAW HIS BROTHER DRAWING FROM COMIC BOOKS ONEĀ  DAY AND DECIDED TO TRY HIS HAND AT IT. HE EXCEEDED AT DRAWING FROM WHAT HE SAW AND DECIDED TO START CREATING FROM MIND AND ON A MORE REALISTIC LEVEL. DIONJA'Y STYLE IS IN DETAIL. HE STARTED DRAWING IN PENCIL, BUT SOON GRADUATED TO OTHER MEDIUMS. HE FOUND HIS LOVE IN PASTEL PAINTINGS AND DABBLES IN DIGITAL PAINTING(A PAINTING PROCESS USING A DIGITAL STYLUS AS YOUR PAINT BRUSH). HE LOVES THE FLOW AND CONTROL OF PASTEL PAINTINGS AND ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES OF DIGITAL PAINTING, BUT NOTHING BEATS THE RAW FLOW OF PASTEL PAINTING.

WHEN DIONJA'Y WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL HIS ART TEACHER GAVE HIM A SCHOLARSHIP TO MARYLAND ART INSTITUTE IN THE 11th GRADE. HOME LIFE MADE IT HARD FOR HIM TO CONTINUE HOWEVER, IT DID NOT MATTER BECAUSE GOD GAVE HIM A GIFT. GOD GIVEN TALENT THEY CALL IT.

LATER ON DIONA'Y ATTENDED THE ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY TO ADD THE EXTRA PUNCH TO HIS WORKS, BUT FAMILY ISSUES ONLY ALLOWED HIM TO ATTEND ONE YEAR. YET GOD'S BLESSING STILL FLOWED THROUGH HIS VEINS. IT DIDN'T STOP HIM FROM GROWING AND FOLLOWING HIS ARTISTIC CALLING. DIONJA'Y'S WORKS MUST WOW THOSE WHO BUY AND VIEW HIS WORK. HE HAD HIS FIRST SHOW SUPPORTED BY A GROUP OF BROTHERS CALLED D.R.U.M. THEY ARE A GROUP OF MANAGERS AT VERIZON, WHERE HE IS CURRENTLY EMPLOYED, WHO HELP MENTOR OTHER BUSINESS HOPEFULS LIKE DIONJA'Y. HE DID GREAT AT SHOWS, BUT SOUGHT BIGGER HORIZONS. HIS INSPIRATION FOR HIS WORK COMES FROM HIS EMOTIONAL JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE. DIONJA'Y'S WORK CELEBRATES LIFE, HAPPINESS AND HOPE. HE SEEKS HIS OWN STYLE WHICH VARIES IN MANY WAYS, BUT STILL GETS HIS VISION ACROSS. I HOPE YOU ENJOY HIS WORK AND SHARE IN HIS CALLING. THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO FIND OUT ABOUT FINE ARTIST DIONJA'Y.
