Martin Bradley (born 1931)

is well-known internationally as painter, draughtsman and sculptor. He was born in London and ran away to sea at the age of fourteen and for some years served as a cabin boy on runs to Central and South America. It was during this time that he took up painting. During the 1950s Bradley exhibited his work at London Galleries including Gimpel Fils (1954), The Redfern Gallery (1957) and Gallery One. He also showed in Paris at Rive Gauche Gallery in the early 1960s. In 1962 he left Paris and spent many years in the Far East where he developed his abilities as a linguist. He lived subsequently in Italy, France, England and Belgium, and has exhibited widely in Britain and abroad, including more than 100 solo shows. Bradley’s work is represented in many important public collections, including The Tate Gallery, The British Museum, Museum of Modern Art New York, The National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne and the Albertina Museum, Vienna.
