b. 1960, Sheffield, England
Born in 1960 in Sheffield, England, David Bromley immigrated to Australia with his family in 1964 and emerged as a painter in the mid 1980s. Since then, he has become one of the most recognizable and innovative artists in Australia. Over the past 20 years David's work has fostered widespread acclaim and notoriety in Australia and internationally. He has exhibited on nearly every continent including Asia, Europe, Africa and America. In his practice, David has developed distinct themes and unique styles of painting; his best known are the nude female portraits and children’s series, but he often explores with various mediums and imagery that portray a certain whimsy. However diverse in his subject matter, David's work is enduringly figurative, daringly colored and executed with a graphic intention that is striking and memorable. David’s practice has extended to significant work in sculpture, creating in both bronze and resin to bring to life the characters imbued within his paintings. His work, both in painting and sculpture have become cornerstone pieces for several of the key interior projects undertaken by Bromley & Co, his company cofounded with Yuge Bromley that pursues various projects in art, design, retail, interiors and construction.
