Joe Bradley

Born in 1975 - United States


biography under completion

Joe Bradley was born in 1975 in Kittery, Maine. He received his B.F.A. in 1999 from Rhode Island School of Design.

In november 2015, his painting Tres Hombres fetched $3,077,000 at the Christie’s New York post-war and contemporary evening sale.

He makes paintings resembling human figures from assembled canvases which reference Color Field painting and Minimalism. Bradley has said his work is “intentionally shoddy” and “pathetic” thanks in part to his use of flimsy shop-bought canvases, but he selects his colours and surface textures with care.
A mid-career survey of Bradley's work is scheduled at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York in June, which will subsequently travel to the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Bradley currently lives and works in New York.
