Kevin Day


Now an established artist residing in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Kevin Day has achieved much recognition in a remarkably short period of time. Having exhibited in major galleries in London and Italy he has gained collectors worldwide.

Mostly known for figurative narrative subjects he also undertakes various projects including Portraiture and Landscapes. Kevin’s school of thought, conscious or not, is that each painting portray a sense of soul and mood.

Even the simplest portrait or still life should possess qualities that move the viewer, leave a lasting impression and invite the viewer to revisit the artwork. It is this force of communication that is his drive and purpose as a visual artist. The main body of his work is figurative narrative.

Taking influence from Sargent, Vermeer, Turner, Manet, Sorrola, Le Page, Kevin Day depicts people in everyday scenes and environments or in staged scenarios where the figures are played as if characters in a film (film directors such as Ridley Scott, Michael Mann, David Lynch and Joe Wright, being a constant inspiration).
