Lie (Jay Turner | b. 1982) is a Chicago Suburb born and based painter. After graduating from The Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg, he was a package designer/illustrator for 3 years until he opened Paper Crown Gallery in Arlington Heights, IL (2011). Submersing himself in the Chicago Street Art Scene, he became a student of spray paint and urban art. Mixing his traditional painting skills and new spray paint skills, he manifested quite a unique style.
