For as long as he can remember, David Bray has been surrounded by art and artists. His late father worked for 30 odd years at the Royal Academy of Arts in London – so by default he was brought up in this environment of creativity and imagination.
He was allowed to wander the galleries before the Royal Academy opened in the morning, so he had all this art to himself.
He usually works with pen/pencil on paper but over recent years he has started experimenting with different mediums.
Bray says, " All the work comes back to the same themes…….
It’s very inspired by 40′s and 50′s pin-ups, religion, David Lynch, breathlessness, heels, black magic, not drowning in the sea – all mixed up and presented in ink, paint and wool."
