Mark Bradford

Bradford is an American artist well known for creating large scale collages using everyday signs in the community such as posters and traffic symbols. These latest trials that I have created are based around his inspirations and techniques. The part that interests me about his work is that he doesn’t see himself as an artist more as a archaeologist. He layers his work until he feels it necessary to stop and then strips it back using objects like sanders and hammers revealing the bones of the work.
