Robert Bradford grew up in a fairly bland South London suburb and wanted to become an artist from a very young age.
In 2004 Robert began experimenting with a series of sculptures which utilise plastic toys as their main modelling material, and which have now attracted consistent international attention. After trials with two unsatisfactory construction methods, he began screwing the toys into wooden armatures, which proved both strong and highly adaptable as a method,
Works from this series have been showing in London Bristol and New York, can be seen in Paris Amsterdam London Flanders and Bangkok over the next months.
He has a new gallery showing here:
