Kevin Day

Kevin works mainly in oils but also in charcoal, pencil and pen sketches.

Kevin Day is an artist residing in Newcastle Upon Tyne and has achieved a great deal of recognition in a remarkably short period of time, having gained collectors world-wide and exhibited in major galleries in London and Italy.

Known for his figurative and narrative subjects, Kevin also undertakes various projects including portraiture and landscapes.

Kevin’s school of thought, conscious or not, is that each painting portrays a sense of soul and mood. Even the simplest portrait or still life should possess qualities that move the viewer that leaves a lasting impression and a desire to view it again and again. It is this force of communication that is his drive and purpose as a visual artist.

Taking influence from Sargent, Vermeer, Sorrola and Le Page, he depicts people in everyday scenes and environments or in staged scenarios where the figures are played as if characters in a film.
