John Day Art

FWT Homepage Translator


Born in South London John 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 now lives in France but visits Brazil regularly. 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.
He paints with an instinctive love of colour that permeates through his paintings. Getting his initial design from photos and sketches, he then uses 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
