Everett Day specializes in Digital Contemporary art focused on political and celebrity figures and their portraits and Mid-Century and Art Deco design, art, culture and architecture. His interest in Florida Art Deco comes from living in Miami Beach and discovering first hand the charm of the vintage art and architecture located there.
Many of his portraits and other pieces have a distinct reference to pop art and in particular the use of dots and dot screens which were used extensively in the 20th Century technology of offset printing. Andy Warhol was the first to popularize the use of enlarged dots from comic book art as a styling technique and Everett has extensively used dots and dot-screnns in his own unique and more subtle way to enhance his portraits of celebrities and other well known figures.
Everett is well known for his portraits of such popular 20th century celebrities as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Frida Kahlo, James Dean, Frank Sinatra, Greta Garbo, and many others. He has also done portraits of contemporary 21st century celebrities such as Madonna, Adele, Katy Perry, Beyonce', Rhianna, Oprah, Benedict Cumberbatch and Lady Gaga.
Everett has a particular interest in Mid century and Art Deco design and his paintings in this vein are mainly focused on the art and style of these eras as found in such places as Miami Beach, Florida and Palm Springs, California.
