Adrian Bradbury is an Image Maker, Artist, Photographer and Digital Artist. He attended Goldsmiths in London followed by a degree in Fine Art at West Surrey College of Art and a Post Grad Diploma in Photography. Following his extensive studies, Adrian quickly established himself in London as a freelance Fashion and Advertising Photographer working with a wide range of clients : IPC Magazines, H Bauer, GE FABBRI, Boots, ASDA, M&S, Canon, House of Fraser and others.
The digital revolution saw his work take a new direction producing photo collage type illustrations for New York Stock Exchange, TNS, SOM(architects), Association of Teachers and Lecturers, Institute of Export, The Home Office, Open Roads and more.
Throughout this journey the desire to draw and create imagery which owed much to his early paintings grew stronger. Today, he is currently exploring abstract colour, based on the theme Coast, combining painting, drawing and digital photography in new and exciting ways, bringing work into being through various steps and processes that combine digital and traditional techniques.
Adrian works with large scale photographic prints creating collages, using photography and colour spaces, developing into a period of experimentation and refinement that in turn led to new drawings and works that displayed more simply a love of colour and line.
Currently, the work explores the relationship between the abstraction of forms through shape, line and textures. Created from drawings and marks made on location before being combined with textures and other elements digitally, allowing very precise control of the image, in terms of colour and layering.
Adrian Bradbury is interested in the re-presentation of the real through abstraction that allows for different interpretations to be made by the viewer. The root of the image may come from observation but equally it can also be a discourse between form, line and texture. The way in which the image is ordered, how all the elements are combined and arranged, clearly becomes the driving force.
