About the artist
dayday is a Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist and filmmaker whose rich personal artistic practice explores themes of identity and navigates intersections between art and commercialism. Spanning film, design, photography, and mixed media, their work is informed by lived experiences of being Black and queer, and is defined by a sense of stillness and minimalism that invites the viewer to slow down and thoughtfully engage. Prior to their directing work, dayday built a respected portfolio in motion media design, freelancing for studios including Los York, Sibling Rivalry, and The Mill, as well as ad agencies Johannes Leonardo, Game Seven, and Kamp Grizzly. Their personal directing projects garnered attention on Vimeo, opening up opportunities to direct commercials and branded content. dayday has since helmed work for brands including Nike, the WNBA, Reebok, Facebook, White Claw, Spotify, and others. Their short film Blue recently debuted as part of Hulu’s anthology documentary series Your Attention Please, hosted by Craig Robinson, and was exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain.
