“I am most gratified when I can inspire someone to look at art in a new way – as a form of self-expression which sparks a wonderful sense of joy and peace in the viewer.”Will Day
VISUAL INSPIRATION FOR LIFE SPACES.
Born in New York City, Will Day lives and works in Boulder, Colorado. He has traveled extensively throughout the world and the experiences of his journeys have inspired him as a person and an artist. Primarily self-taught, his interest in painting intensified during his travels throughout North Africa, South America, and Europe. His fine art training has consisted of studies in Paris, France and Dublin, Ireland.
Will has an inherent ability to create bold, abstract images on canvas – the majority being large-scale in format. His art balances texture, color and layering into cohesive and appealing images. He works with his canvasses on the floor so that he can rotate and apply materials from different vantage points. Will has a disciplined approach to each painting with the goal of producing original works that are spontaneous and resplendent. “While all the paintings are abstract, I try to create numerous shapes and forms that are visible. Several of the paintings depict forms of nature, such as flowers or landscapes,” he explains. “My ultimate goal is to fuse three or four colors in each painting to project a strong, motivating energy to the viewer.”
A sought after artist in the community, Will has had several solo shows including one titled, “The Creative Results of Economics Downturns,” and has participated in group exhibitions across the country. His original and vibrant paintings won the attention of Boulder fans during the 2009 Downtown Boulder Arts Festival, where he was awarded a blue ribbon for his work.
His art is featured in public and private collections throughout the United States. He exhibits at galleries in New York City, Niwot, Denver and Steamboat, CO. In addition, Will displays and sells his work through his website and studio in Boulder, Colorado.
