Welcome to the site of British artist John Day
Born in South East London in 1949, self-taught artist John has been painting full time for the past 14 years. Brazil has had a big influence on his work. (Living there between 2001 and 2009) Although now living in France his paintings still respond to the colourful feel of the South American country and its people.
He paints with an instinctive love of colour that permeates through his paintings.
The influence on my present series of paintings comes from the favelas and beaches of Rio.
I am concentrating on colour and shape rather than a direct representation of a place or object
Exhibiting regularly since 2003, his work can be found in private collections in the UK, Brazil and France
