Ry David Bradley (b.1979, Melbourne) lives and works in London, New York City and Melbourne. Graduating in 2013 with an MFA from Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne University, Bradley has exhibited internationally including LA, London, New York, Berlin, Brussels, Milan, Cologne, Sydney and Melbourne. His work often shifts media but always looks closely at painting in the 21st century, the new opportunities and the shortcomings in our digital moment. Recent solo exhibitions include “Post Truth II” at Galerie Derouillon, Paris; “Unvalley Valley” at Evelyn Yard, London; “Not To Be Digitized” at Tristian Koenig, Sydney and “Where Do You Want to Go Today” at Brand New Gallery, Milan. His work debuted in the USA with Bill Brady Gallery in Kansas City in 2015 with “Access All Areas.” His work has recently been added to the permanent collection of the Victoria Museum in Melbourne.
