Based in the heart of Yorkshire, Joey Bradley is an emerging artist creating contemporary animations, sculpture and illustrations from his shared studio space. The combination of a passionate atmosphere and sharing a space with four other dedicated artists and designers drove Joey to create a small business of his own alongside his desire to spread art and design that everyone can enjoy.
With a combination of a BTEC Visual Communication course and BA (Hons) Fine Art for Design degree, Joey Bradley took to spreading his love for creating immediately. Taking his obsession with tactility, the bespoke and the bewildering, he transformed part of his Fine Art practice into a series of affordable transitional plushies and contemporary artist prints. Since then, he has expanded, furthering his products to original art, pin badges and plans to create other creative products such as risograph prints.
Joey has firmly established himself as a sole trader with the wish of inspiring others to do the same; to be creative, expressive, and to not be afraid of challenge. However, through all hurdles, and dilemmas, Joey will not forget his motivation for inspiring others, as this is the true value an artist can get through expressing and selling in art.
Joey has had work featured in exhibitions across the UK, recent exhibitions appearing at The Old Truman Brewery, The Depot, alongside being showcased in the Aesthetica Magazine.
