British artist Shane Bradford (n. 1971) has established an international presence as a paint-based multi-media artist and maker, living and working in London.
Bradford engages with materials as a means to reflect upon wider socio-political issues, developing bespoke techniques of application which often interconnect with topical contemporary dialogues. Bradford’s practice broadens to incorporate large-scale painting, installation and sculpture.
Since winning the Celeste Painting Prize, London in 2007, Bradford has gone on to exhibit and attend residencies worldwide. In 2019-20 he was a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Awardee.
In 2020 Bradford established Assembly Line, an artist-led platform for the exploration and production of unique limited edition art multiples.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Recent works have evolved via a method of ‘mono-painting’ with found objects. By printing with obsolete materials an abstract form of urban vernacular is isolated and expanded. In this way the visual language of the city is seen afresh.
PLEASE DO NOT BID ON ARTWORK IN OUR ART ON A POSTCARD AUCTIONS IF YOU INTEND ON SELLING THE ARTWORK AFTER YOU HAVE PURCHASED IT. THIS AUCTION HAS BEEN ORGANISED FOR CHARITY AND ALL ARTWORKS HAVE BEEN GENEROUSLY DONATED BY THE ARTISTS TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE HEPATITIS C TRUST. WHEN THE WORK PRODUCED FOR THE CHARITY IS SOLD ON THE SECONDARY MARKET IT DAMAGES OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ARTIST AND PREVENTS US FROM FUNDRAISING.
