Biography

Day Bowman,

Day Bowman, a graduate of Chelsea School of Art and London University, is a painter whose work lies on the axis of figuration and abstraction.  In her current body of work Tearing up the Rule Book she confronts and questions our notion of the coast and the seaside and asks is it now more border than holiday destination?

In 2012 she was commissioned to produce a series of posters for Weymouth, host town to the Olympic Sailing and Paralympic Sailing Events.  In 2013 she was one of four artists to represent the U.K. at Nord Art Germany and in 2017/18 her work toured to four museum galleries in China organised by Contemporary British Painting.  More recently Bowman has curated a UK wide tour of Edgelands 2016/17 and Getting Away! 2018 exhibited at Arthouse1 Bermondsey and Quay Arts IOW.

In 2019 she won the Anima Mundi Painting Prize established by the Its Liquid Group. Her work will be on exhibition at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space Venice during the Biennale.

Day's solo exhibition Tearing up the Rule Book premiered at The Westminster Reference Library in March 2019 and will tour to Galerie Atelier Mesuline France in September.   

Her work is in numerous private and public collections worldwide including: Hilton Hotel Group, British Dental Association; Dorset County Hospital; St. Vincent and the Grenadines Art Collection; Yantai Art Museum China.
