About the Artist

"The main focus of my work is the journey that we go on physically and emotionally. I play this out often in the adolescent world where I feel the magnitude of what life holds for us and demands from us is at its most potent. Anything from a close up of a face depicting an emotion through to a snapshot of an action, an adventure or an interaction often played out in a nautical landscape. The sea brings with it a romance, a challenging emotional environment. The distinct imagery from "Boys Own" comics popular culture of their day and in their day served as moral tales for the young. I find this imagery poignant in so many ways and a wonderful vehicle for telling tales at what it is to be alive and to be on the journey that is our life."
David Bromley

David Bromley paints every day and remains thankful of his creative gift. He is admired for his dramatic use of acrylic paint and the rich texture he builds into his figurative work. Through his nostalgic "Boys Own Annual" 1930s subject matter - from pirates to lighthouses, boats to running races and boxing matches - Bromley dips into our childhood memories, conjuring up emotions and moments from our past.
