Paul Day has been sculpting for over 30 years and creating bespoke public monuments for 20 of those. He is widely recognised as a master of high-relief sculpture, a particular form of the art that combines three dimensional sculpture and modelled perspective. From his studio in rural Burgundy Day has made sculptures across the globe, from New Zealand to the United States and throughout Europe. Four of Day’s public monuments are in London; the best known of these being his “Meeting Place” sculpture which stands 9metres tall under the clock in St Pancras Station. He is also responsible for the Battle of Britain Memorial, the Iraq Afghanistan Memorial and monumental reliefs on the Queen Mother Memorial along the Mall. His clients have included The Royal Family, The Ministry of Defence and the Brussels City Parliament among others. Paul Day’s art is also found in many private and public collections across the United States including the Houston Fine Arts Museum and the Arizona State University Museum.
He has recently been commissioned by Rollins College, Florida, to make a sculpture celebrating the life and work of Fred Rogers, and is currently working on a memorial to Royal Navy Submariners for the National Memorial Arboretum.
In 2002, Paul Day won a selective competition to design and create a monument to honour the pilots of the Second World War known as “The Few”, commemorating their achievements during the Battle of Britain in 1940. Three years later, the new monument was unveiled by TRH the Prince of Wales & the Duchess of Cornwall to wide public acclaim.
