John Day is a British artist from South East London who now lives in Vienne, France, where he has a small in house gallery (Dayart Gallery)
The Gallery has a relaxed atmosphere where clients can view artwork without obligation. Exhibiting since 2009, John’s work can be found in private collections in the UK, Brazil, France and Ireland.
Based in France, and a frequent visitor to Brazil I get a large amount of inspiration from both countries. I love the colorful atmosphere of some coastal areas of Brazil and the light and landscapes of France.
Most of my work comes from my imagination but is based on a place, photograph, a story and as with my latest work an event in history.
My paintings are made up using many layers, I use canvas collage which has been painted then cut and re positioned on to the art work. I love to sand back the work, scratching into the surface revealing new shapes and colors. My work undergoes many changes before I am satisfied with the finish product.
