Asher Jay

National Geographic Explorer, Creative Conservationist , USA

Asher Jay is an international adventurer and public figure whose compelling paintings, sculptures, installations, animations, ad campaigns, and films all have a single purpose: to incite global action on behalf of wildlife conservation.

Asher‘s travels to the frontline have made her witness and story-teller, combating illegal wildlife trafficking, promoting habitat sanctuaries and illuminating humanitarian emergencies. Her core message, again and again: biodiversity loss during the Anthropocene – the Age of Man.

Asher harnesses the effective application of the arts to address simple disconnects that prevent individuals from understanding the complexity of the whole. Much of her best-known work spotlights the illegal ivory trade. More recently, Asher opened two permanent exhibits at National Geographic Encounter in New York’s Times Square — a large scale wall-mounted installation entitled Piece of the Planet, and an immersive, soundscape installation called “Message in a Bottle.”

From big name brands like Prada, Biotherm & Adidas to well-known non-profit organizations like WWF, BSR (Business for Social Responsibility) and National Geographic Society, Asher, as interdisciplinary designer, is fluent in sensorially evocative visual discourse that transcends normative communication barriers.
