"KIND OF BLUE", MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE WITH FOUND OBJECTS ON CANVAS

DAVID BRADY

David Brady is a Los Angeles mixed media artist. He is known for his continuous exploration of the figure through collage and his use of found objects. Brady views painting and creativity as a science in which one incessantly experiments with a variety of mediums and self-taught techniques while researching themes through travel, sketching and research. Utilizing a host of found objects and recycled materials his collage based paintings portray powerful and provocative images that reflect contemporary life. His creations include collage, assemblage, oil and drawing as well as digitally based projections and interactive multimedia.

Since the early 1980's, Brady's paintings and collage works have been featured in several one-man and group exhibitions, international projects and student programs. His appetite for everything creative has landed him an "Artist in Residence in Japan", performance works at UCLA/Hammer Museum in addition to collaborating with Nelson Mandela, poet Amde Hamilton, composer Mark Sims and others.

Exhibitions and projects include the Museum of Fine Art Cuba, Modern Art Museum Mexico, Turchin Center for the Arts, The Lincoln Center, Lilia Arts Center Japan, MOCA Los Angeles, World Trade Center Osaka and the Center for the Study of Collage in France and others.

In 2012 two new books were published about his work, "Lost and Found" and "Uncovered" both available through the gallery. He is currenly working on a new publication, a collaboration with Master poet Amde Hamilton. The book will feature 20 digital collage pieces created specifically for the project.
