Cherryl K Bradley Art Show Opening Party
About Cherryl K Bradley
I am an abstract artist based on the North Fork of Long Island NY. I am a native New Yorker from Elmhurst, Queens. I enjoy working with acrylics, spray paint and markers. In addition to paint brushes, I love to play with a variety of tools, plastic and allowing paint to splash, drip and speak for itself. I am self taught and still learning through constant experimentation and following my intuition. I am inspired by Jackson Pollock, Banksy, and modern abstract artists Manax Raiszadeh, Tracey Verdugo, and many more. I love the freedom of expression abstract painting gives me and I am always surprised at the completed pieces, it’s as though they create themselves. Music, nature and sometimes current events drive me and put me in the zone.
I have lived a creative and colorful life as a professional dancer, circus showgirl/aerialist, puppeteer and choreographer. I believe that is where my influence and use of color, sparkle and large canvases originated. It wasn’t until our recent turn of events, being quarantined, allowed me to fully explore my true love for painting. My first solo show “Lockdown” took place in November 2021 as ‘Artist of the Month’ at Eastern Front Brewery in Mattituck, where I sold 4 pieces! My new exhibition “UNihibited” presented at Chronicle Wines, is a combination of past work and new ideas, the birth of a new season and the feeling of freedom.
