The COAST series came from many visits in recent years to both the Cornish and Welsh coasts and are an abstract motif of the colour, atmospherics and beauty of the coast.
The light, the texture, the sense of water running down or across a beach, the surf or even just a rock pool have provided a rich inspirational theme for me.
WINTER STORMS also comes from initial studies and interpretations of the coast on wild nights as the sea and sky appear to almost be as one .
IT'S ONLY ROCK AND ROLL SERIES combines imagery of American muscle cars and guitars mixed with graphic iconography, juxtaposed in vibrant compositions, owing much to the music of our lives.
Welcome to Adrian Bradbury Art.
I studied at Goldsmiths College, London and then at WSCAD in Surrey obtaining a BAhons fine art- painting and a Surrey Diploma in Photography before embarking on a twenty year career as a fashion and advertising photographer with a large studio in the heart of Clerkenwell EC1 and subsequently moved towards digital illustration and design in the late 90's. My websites give some taste of my experience.
However, I have continued to draw and explore image making in a variety of ways, from collage to painting. I am constantly making and creating, images and objects - the need to experiment and explore ideas and thoughts sustains and drives my daily routine.
My current focus of work now is centred on the theme COAST. I am passionate about making work and now have my own studio where I can allow myself free reign to explore and experiment with my ideas and vision.
INDUSTRIAL MARKS comes from a series of observations of mechanical marks made on metal, washers and rusting panels of steel, juxtaposed against a pure white ground
