Shane Bradford

Shane Bradford is a British painter (born 1971) who has established a reputation for his objects that span painting and sculpture - he dips selected objects into gloss paint in a process of precise sequences - the dipped objects (often books) are usually appended by his trademark solid drips of thick paint. Selected 'dipped books' can be seen on this page under 'Constructions & Mixed Media'.

In 2007, Bradford won the Celeste Art Prize for Moths, one of his 'dart' series paintings (wall installations of dipped objects attached to darts). Moths featured in England & Co's 2008 exhibition there anybody out there? Bradford has exhibited widely in Britain, Europe and the USA, and had a solo exhibition featuring both paintings and 'dipped books' at England & Co in 2010:  Shane Bradford: Selected Works.
