Evoking the universality of color, skeletons, and celebrity, Bradley Theodore distills figures to skeletal forms, a confrontation that the artist calls “an act of living”, pushing color to express memory, emotion, and lived experiences. The Turks and Caicos-born artist rose to popularity as a street artist known for vibrant murals, celebrity portraits, and signature skull motifs. Deeply connected to the fashion world, Theodore’s portraits juxtapose the legendary and mortal qualities of modern and contemporary fashion icons. Theodore emphasizes the importance of accessibility in street art, intentionally sharing his work outside of formal gallery settings, as well as collaborating with popular artists and brands on creative projects.
