Will Day

Painter and Speaker

Idea Worth Sharing: It took me 38 years to realize that shedding expectations and embracing life’s disruptions are the ways that I find MY creativity in the chaos. 

Born in NYC, Will lives and works in Boulder, CO. He has traveled extensively across 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, Tunisia and Dublin, Ireland.

Will has an inherent ability to create bold, abstract images on canvas – the majority being large-scale format. His art balances texture, color, and layering into cohesive and appealing images. He works with the canvases on the floor so that he can rotate and apply materials from different vantage points., “My ultimate goal is to fuse three or four colors in each painting to project a strong, motivating energy to the viewer.” His art is featured in public and private collections throughout the US and abroad.

Will has also been selected to give talks and speeches around the country with a recent highlight of being selected by the Board of Directors at Cushing Academy to give the commencement address to the class of 2016.
