Instagram Takeover – Bex Day

Bex Day’s saturated colour palettes and surreal storylines shake off the limitations of our eyes. Her playful, humorous imagery undoes stereotypes and standards of beauty.

Bex has lectured about her work at Nicer Tuesdays (It’s Nice That), Cambridge University, The Hepworth Gallery, and the Vogue Italia The Female Gaze 2016 and Masculinity Now 2018 exhibition. She was nominated for the Magnum Graduate Award 2016 and the C/O Berlin Talent Award 2020, and took part in the 209 Women exhibition at the Palace of Westminster, supporting women in the UK parliament.

Her recent editorial and commercial clients include Numero Berlin, Fendi, Levi’s, Toast, Lula Japan, Girlgaze, Wallpaper, Vogue Italia, Carven, Twin, American Apparel, Marta Jakubowski, AnOther, i-D (UK/DE), British Journal of Photography, ODDA (cover), Lula Japan, Burberry, Adobe, Stella McCartney, Topshop, Dazed and Confused, Puss Puss (cover), The New York Times, and Vice (UK/US) to name a few.

Bex Day is taking over @paperjournalmag from today until the 14th of December. You can follow her @bex_day and see more of her work at
