City hosts Scots debut for ‘bad boy’ artist Bradley
AN artist whose work is earning a “bad boy” reputation for its popularity among bikers and tattooists has opened his first major Scottish exhibition in St Andrew Square.
Belfast-born painter Terry Bradley has earned a cult following among devotees of body art and fans of iconic motorcycle brand, Harley-Davidson.
Now a series of his works has gone on show as part of the Live Art at the Festival event.
The exhibition is the brainchild of Bob Corsie, managing director of the Scottish chain of Breeze galleries.
He said: “Terry’s work is highly distinctive and many of his pieces are influenced by Belfast dockers or New York burlesque dancers.
“They have been likened to the work of Peter Howson, one of Scotland’s most successful living artists, though I think Terry’s work is more accessible. I knew he had it made when he was invited to paint the fuel tank for the Harley-Davidson HQ in Milwaukee.”
