Born in Turks, Bradley Theodore is a contemporary artist who started his career in New York City
Theodore’s beginnings as an artist came from adorning the streets of New York City with vibrant, chromatic murals of skeletons depicting contemporary pop culture and fashion “royalty.” Known for his colorful depictions of icons, he is a multi-disciplinary artist whose iconoclastic approach to art can be found internationally, from 10-foot murals on the streets of Tokyo, Paris and Milan, to sold-out solo exhibitions in London and NYC. Evoking the universality of color, skeletons, and celebrity, Theodore distils figures to skeletal forms, a confrontation that the artist calls “an act of living”, pushing color to express memory, emotion, and lived experiences.
The artist has collaborated with popular artists and brands on creative projects for Puma, Moët, Rolls-Royce, Lego, Google and Moleskine. In 2016, Bradley was the official artist for the US Open, where he created four murals on display at the tournament's venue; and was the subject of independent film “Becoming: Bradley Theodore”, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
