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.

“The unique power of art is that it can transcend differences, connect with people on a visceral level, and compel action.”
