Augusta Stylianou Gallery
Paul Day, born in 1967, is a British sculptor. His high-relief sculptures in terracotta, resin, and bronze have been exhibited widely in Europe and his work is known for its unusual approach to perspective.
Major works include:
* Brussels - an urban comedy, a 25 metre long terracotta frieze in the Royal Galleries of Saint-Hubert in Brussels
Most recently a high-relief frieze has been added to the base of the Meeting Place sculpture, featuring images from the history of tube (subway) and train: people queuing on platforms or travelling in carriages; soldiers departing for war, and returning injured, and repair works following the 7 July 2005 London bombings. The work was the object of controversy when first erected, as one panel depicted a commuter falling into the path of a train driven by the Grim Reaper, however, following discussions with London and Continental Railways (LCR), this panel was replaced with another that the authorities agreed to display.  
Paul Day studied art at art schools in the United Kingdom at Colchester and Dartington, completing his training at Cheltenham in 1991. He now lives in a village near Dijon in France, with his wife, Catherine, a native of France. Their Anglo-French relationship is an explicit and repetitive reference in his works. The Meeting Place, which is modelled on an embrace between Paul and Catherine, standing as a metaphor for St. Pancras's role as the terminus of the rail link between England and France.
Another contemporary sculptor and critic, Antony Gormley, singled out The Meeting Place statue when he condemned the current public art works across the U.K., stating: ".....there is an awful lot of crap out there."
