Biography:
 It is difficult to imagine that Calvin Bradbury is a self-taught Artist, even while his art by no means fails to stretch our imaginations. While we can accept that the technical development of his paintings as progressive, to believe that Bradbury has not professionally studied is a phenomena. Spending time on the margins of society in some periods of his life, art has carried Bradbury through the vicissitudes of the peripheral. His own focus thus far has been aimed at assessing truth in his art. Although Bradbury's work is original in its appearance and conceptual value, his techniques appear rooted in more than one school of painting. His most obvious traits bare a distinct resemblance to German Expressionism and American Realism - works by Edward Munch to Edward Hopper, to Alex Colville. Writers and Poets have also heavily influenced Bradbury in his work, from Jack Kerouac, to T.S. Eliot, to Al Purdy. Their influences may give rise to style, as well as subject matter, as well as text in his work. Certainly it is not the form that we are most drawn to in Bradbury's paintings, so much as we are drawn to the abstract design within his beautifully framed compositions. There is a transaction taking place within Bradbury's work in so many different forms. His work cannot be identified with a single style, technique, or attitude, but can be characterized by a highly imaginative and subjective approach, while emphasizing a dramatic and visionary quality. They challenge the viewer to see clearly and truthfully, assessing in their work a more multi-dimensional state of being. Despite the blatant nature of his artistic influences, Bradbury's vision is original. His surreal and abstract notions carry with them a tone of romanticism rooted in organic nature and transmogrified to fit its contemporary context. In most all of his pieces, Bradbury demonstrates both a break from representational art and show its development - through to abstract imagery, while remaining true to nature. There is no doubt that through his painting, Bradbury addresses the cultural context that is his own reality.
