David Bromley is amongst the most energetic painters currently working in Australia. In his art he has managed to combine a distinctive Pop sensibility – a love of found images, photographic sources and mass media references – with an inventive relish for the effects of paint. His work divides into two distinct but related strands: images of childhood (adapted from the world of 1950s’ book illustrations) and images of the female nude.
Displaying an extraordinary artistic energy he has experimented with a wide variety of different media – printmaking, ceramic, sculpture and, recently, film. He is currently working on designs for a collection of utility furniture. Though born in Sheffield, England, in 1960, Bromley moved to Australia at the age of four and has lived there ever since. As an artist he is self-taught. He has had over thirty solo exhibitions across Australia, Europe, the USA and Asia. His work is held in corporate, private and public collections in both hemispheres. He is listed as one of the ’50 Most Collectible Artists in Australia’ by Australian Art Collector Magazine.
