Day-z is a London born artist who graduated in Fine Art from Central St Martins.
Using a pencil as her main weapon of choice, she skilfully depicts contemporary socio-political subjects and playfully subverts them. Her lifelike style has been seen to resurrect the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Audrey Hepburn and Tupac Shakur. Day-z has a natural ability to create witty and playful artworks that fuse together fine and street art. Using techniques from the Old Masters, Day-z casts an academic finish to contemporary and urban inspired works that demand attention and catch the eye.
Many of her ideas draw upon fashion, brands and advertising which she uses to reflect on our own culture with a mix of imagination, dexterity, and subtle humour. Influences from Cindy Sherman, Alison Jackson and Banksy can be detected in her work to reveal her own unique style, which is evident in her explorations of themes and the social comments she injects into her works.
She explores perceptions of current celebrity culture and gender, both subjects that resonate within her art. Day-z imitates modern prints and photographs but draws them by hand, often to deceive the viewer and invite them to observe the work more closely, proving that she has a natural talent for art, and a flair for creating entertaining and unforgettable work.
