Turks and Caicos-born, New York-based artist Bradley Theodore paints unique portraits of celebrities and pop culture and fashion icons depicting them as multicolored skeletons.
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.” Bradley Theodore is 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. Theodore’s portraits juxtapose the legendary and mortal qualities of modern and contemporary icons and the artist has become a staple in the art and fashion scene in New York City.Bradley Theodore
