In each generation, an artist emerges who has the potential to become iconic. New York lays claim to many of them – Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Jean-Michel Basquiat. Now, Bradley Theodore has emerged as an artist with the potential to join this list of famous names.

GQ Magazine describes his works as “chromatic thunderstorms – at once exhilarating, incontrovertibly powerful and ever so slightly chilling.”

Theodore’s signature Dia de los Muertos style is instantly recognisable, and his energetic use of colour, bold paintbrush strokes and stripped-back skeletal figures has led his work to be compared to that of fellow New York street artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat. In fact, Vogue’s International Editor Suzy Menkes refers to his work as “Banksy meets Basquiat.”

Just like Basquiat, the value of Theodore’s art is steadily increasing, thanks to a growing number of high profile collectors and celebrity admirers. Maddox Gallery hosted Bradley Theodore’s first UK solo exhibition, Son of the Soil, in April 2016. The artist returned the following spring with an even more incredible solo exhibition, The Second Coming. An exclusive launch event was attended by many of the artist’s VIP fans and collectors, including Thierry Henry, Peter Crouch and John Terry.

While Bradley Theodore art is available at various top galleries around the world, here at Maddox Gallery we are monumentally proud to have UK and European exclusivity. We can even arrange for specially commissioned pieces, providing you with truly unique art. If you are looking to invest in Bradley Theodore artworks, please contact us to find out more.

A short history of Bradley Theodore

Born in Turks & Caicos, an island group east of Cuba, Bradley Theodore now lives in New York City where he is an integrated part of the art scene.

However, he is dedicated to making his art accessible for all to see around the world, producing murals on the streets of Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Oslo and Paris.

Bradley Theodore is also enjoying commercial success, haven been chosen as the official artist for the 2016 US Open and virtual reality artist in residence for Google.

As a result, many people are fascinated by his story. So much so in fact, “Becoming: Bradley Theodore,” a documentary on Theodore’s life and his journey to success in the art world, recently premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.

Celebrities featured in his work

Bradley Theodore creates works that are inspired by the artist’s travels and the music world. He has created album cover art for Def Jam, Universal Records and Sony, and features music icons like Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols and Prince in his work.

Classical figures from history and contemporary icons provide inspiration for Theodore, such as Mona Lisa, Frida Kahlo, Marie Antoinette, Coco Chanel and Her Majesty The Queen.

“Queen Elizabeth represents the strong, beautiful, powerful woman that is the archetype for women today,” Theodore explained to GQ Magazine.

However, his most enduring theme is the fashion world. He has deployed his artistic skills to depict the likes of Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld, Kate Moss, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne.

“Fashion allows people to become art,” Bradley Theodore once explained to Widewalls.

“As humans, we are naturally equipped with a few tools and the one we’ve had the best results with in our endeavours is the brain.”

“We’ve created a world where shape and colour come together to lead the basis for our society. We call that art. Not only do you want to shape our world, it wanted to shape us. I would call that fashion.”

Crucially, Theodore’s skeletal paintings strip back iconic figures who are most known for their carefully curated exterior selves.

Taking art to another dimension

Bradley Theodore art has traditionally taken the form of murals and canvas paintings. However, he continues to break boundaries as an artist by adding virtual reality creations to his repertoire.

Theodore was named virtual reality artist in residence for Google. Using Google’s new Tilt Brush tool, he is revisiting his early career as a digital graphic designer and 3D animator, and incorporating live virtual reality painting into his exhibitions.

Virtual reality represents a new, exciting and rapidly-evolving form of artistic expression.

This not only gives Theodore the opportunity to create art in a whole new dimension, but also makes it possible for visitors to interact with his work on an individual level.
