Martin Bradley

Martin Bradley (U.K., 1931) is known for creating abstract and symbolic works that draw on Eastern calligraphy and Buddhism. Born in London, Bradley traveled widely before returning to exhibit with Gimpel Fils, the Redfern Gallery, and Victor Musgrave. Also during this time, he became associated with London’s bohemian scene, earning the nickname “Rimbaud of Soho.” During the late 1950s, Bradley spent time in Paris, where he exhibited with Galerie Rive Gauche, known for its Surrealist collection of works by artists such as Max Ernst, Yves Tanguy, and René Magritte.
