Day Bowman graduated from Chelsea School of Art and London University in 1980. Her work as a painter lies on the axis of figuration and abstraction. In the past 15 years she has collaborated with film-makers, composers and musicians to produce installations in sacred spaces, market squares and railway stations throughout the U.K.
The Urban Wastelands Project, a touring exhibition (2011-12), highlighted issues concerning the wastelands and detritus that surround our cities and ports. She was commissioned to produce a series of giant hoardings for Weymouth Station as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
