Having first studied at Colchester and then Dartington art schools, Paul Day completed his training at Cheltenham in 1991. It was there that he turned is attention from painting to sculpture and where he first started to explore the representations of the figures in architecture space, using high relief, an art form that combines drawn composition and fully rounded sculpture.
Upon finishing his education, Day began working professionally at once, aided by a grant from the Prince of Wales Business Trust. Over the years, he has developed a form of art singularly difficult to categorise in terms of comtemporary artistic idioms. His high relief sculptures in terra cotta, resin and bronze, have been exhibited widely in Europe and are appreciated not least for their particular personal approach in perspective. His exibitions attract considerably interest from both the public and media alike. This appeal of an artist unquestionally of his time but whose work links up with a long standing tradition is rare. Day has placed the themes of Urbanity and the City at the heart of his artistic practice and in order to represent them, has elaborated a perspective of subjectivity.
Since his first solo show in Paris in 1995, Paul Day has undertake many commissions and exhibitions in France, Germany, Belgium and the U.K.
