Dave Bradford

Prior to settling his family in Katonah, Dave Bradford has been an example of the adage, “not all who wander are lost.”

 
Dave is originally from South Salem. Since graduating from John Jay, he has pursued an uncommon path. This journey informs his work, whether his creations are visual art, prose, or performance. He is an illustrator, painter, writer, established actor, and standup comedian.  


Since first moving from the area, in 1984, he’s been an Army paratrooper, a professional whitewater river and mountaineering guide.  All the while, Dave developed his creative endeavors. Since 1991, he has been making his living as a full-time artist, going where his creativity takes him.  


He works in acrylic, india ink, mixed media, and digitally. His process begins on a digital tablet, to save paper while developing an idea.  The base of an image is then printed on watercolor paper, redrawn on canvas, or color separated for screen printing.  All are then hand finished using pigmented lacquers, watercolor pencils, markers, india ink, acrylic paint, and whatever brings the image to life. This also includes character sculpture for animation, in clay and foam latex. 
His portraits of guitars are inspired by a recent collection of short stories he’s recently written.
