DAY ART GALLERY
WELCOME TO THE SITE OF ENGLISH ARTIST JOHN DAY
John was born in South London and has been painting full time for the past 13 years. There are many influences on his paintings, mainly from Brazil, where he lived and worked between 2001 and 2009. John is a big fan of Brazilian art. Among his favourite artists are Anita Malfatti and Tarsila do Amaral. Also "Romero Britto" who combines elements of cubism, pop art and graffiti in his extremely colourful paintings.
John now lives in France but visits Brazil regularly and his paintings still respond to the colourful feel of the South American country and its people.
Since 2003 John has worked consistently on his painting trying to develop his own personal style.
Recently his work (which in the past was predominantly figurative) has started to move more towards the abstract.
John works on canvas, wooden board and paper. When working on canvas or board he often builds up layers of paint then by sanding and scratching back he is able to bring the different layers of colour through. He paints with an instinctive love of colour that permeates through his paintings. Getting his initial design from photos and sketches only to use them to give the painting shape and form. His work reflects, more his feelings at any one time rather than a direct representation of the landscape or object.
Exhibiting regularly since 2003 his work can be found in private collections in the UK, Brazil and France
