'Colour-Blind The King' is a unique sculpture by the British artist, Chris Day, created from handblown & sculpted glass with microbore copper pipe, copper wire and rope.

In direct response to the invitation to create new works for the poignantly titled exhibition ‘Not Black or White’ taking place at SoShiro, Chris Day has taken a brave new direction. Despite commencing his practice later in life, in a short but intensely productive time, Day has made his mark. In many ways he has made up for lost time, harnessing his unparalleled drive to not only make but to stimulate discourse with others, with what is often seen as challenging subject matter. A fearless yet gentle orator of other’s true tales, often involving unfathomable racism, cruelty & torture, Day has become emboldened, finding the ability to open up and speak about his own difficult past.
