Welcome to Dayart
Original contemporary art
Showcasing the work of artist John Day
Painting professionally since 2003, John has worked consistently since this time on his painting and trying to develop his own personal style.
He uses oil and mixed media, often applying the paint with rag and a piece of stick he works the paint in and across the canvas, sanding down and scratching into it, bringing underlying colour through making it part of the finished work. He uses photographs and drawings from different locations to develop his work back in his studio.
Although he now lives in France, living and travelling in Brazil has inspired his work which responds to the colourful feel of the country and its people.
His work is predominantly figurative but he is inclined to move towards the abstract and has been exhibited regularly and widely since 2003 and can be found in private collections in the UK, Brazil and France
"I like to think I paint with an instinctive love of colour that permeates through my paintings. Inspired by still life and figurative forms I try to capture a moment in time expressed through a vibrant colourful palette.”
