Keith Bradley
Sculptor

 

Sculptor, Keith Bradley, perhaps known best for his current work of metal animal sculptures, is giving the art world reason to rave. His unusual, life-size, whimsical sculptures of horses, bulls, cats and dogs are being discovered and collected by art patrons the world over.  Keith’s ability to metamorphose a familiar object, deviates from classical sculpture and creates a fascinating, unusual world for the connoisseur of fine art. It is not unusual to have a huge crate carrying a life-size animal being shipped to France, Canada, England or Germany. Patrons cannot walk away from the spirited, animated creations. Keith’s’ energy and sense of humor are immediately evident to the viewer and they are drawn into his world of new reality, curiosity and imagination. They all take their animals home for a favorites spot in the house, patio or yard. Corporations have begun collections and sculpture gardens featuring his creations for the pleasure of the corporate client. Bradley has captured the essence of originality, creativity and fun in each of his designs. His inspiration came from a burnt out metal barn roof in Northern Florida and Bradley decided to pay tribute to the animals that once inhabited that domain. Not limited to any one form of sculpture, this artist excels at each medium he indulges in and captures the viewer by enhancing the subject in a delightfully humorous composition.

Bradley began his career as a graduate of the Culinary Institute of Hyde Park, N.Y., as a chef. Unfortunately for the restaurants, but phenomenally lucky for the art world, a back injury forced Bradley to redirect his creativity and discover another outlet. Having no formal training, he attacked work with his “full speed ahead” attitude, and within three months, had both paintings and pottery, on display in galleries. The art of airbrush became a challenge and within a year, Bradley’s work was displayed in national galleries. After two years, he accepted a teaching position at Miami International Fine Arts College.

Bradley is currently working in South Florida, constantly creating and enjoying these fantastic, imaginative creations that capture the hearts of all who have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of these non-demanding critters that do not have to be fed, groomed, or taken to the vet. Be sure to check on Keith’s’ work, as this artist has a curiosity driven sense of humor and is constantly expanding his sculptural field with new and imaginative sculptures.
