UNIQUE ANIMAL PORTRAIT ART BY GREGORY DAY
Living with his young family in a busy house in Staffordshire, UK and driven by a passion for great design and bold visually striking imagery Gregory Day specialises in creating original hyper detailed and exclusive animal portrait art pieces.
EXPLORING ARTISTIC INFLUENCES
Influenced by photographers and artists such as Martin Schoeller and Drew Struzan, Gregory has always been fascinated by the fine details in portrait images as these subtleties can often reveal so much about the subject, who they are and the life they’ve lead. His work is born from a desire to portray each of his animal subjects honestly, with larger than life contemporary images that give the viewer a strong sense of affinity and closeness to them.
THE MASTERY IS IN THE FINE DETAIL
Having started out as a photographer, each of Gregory’s portraits are created directly from photographs that he captures during an initial sitting with his subject. Over approximately 40+ hours he meticulously refines the original photograph/s into a unique portrait using careful and considered digital image editing techniques that allow him to explore each subject with lifelike and tactile portraits that accurately highlight and fully celebrate every single one of their precious and unique physical characteristics in unequalled detail.
A DRIVEN CONCEPT
By working closely with skilled printers & framing professionals and crafting portraits that are an emotive mix of storytelling, design and creativity Gregory seeks to give the viewer the opportunity to almost get to know the subject and feel the texture of their coat on their fingertips as they look at his work on their wall.
