David Brady is known for his continuous exploration of the figure through traditional and digital collage and his use of discarded objects.
Brady views painting and creativity as a science in which one incessantly experiments with a variety of mediums and self-taught techniques while researching themes through travel, sketching and research. Utilizing a host of found objects and recycled materials his collage-based paintings portray powerful and provocative images that reflect contemporary life. His creations include collage, assemblage, oil and drawing as well as digitally based projections and interactive multimedia.
Since the early 1980s, Brady’s paintings and collage works have been featured in numerous exhibitions, international projects, and student programs. Projects include an “Artist in Residence in Japan”, in addition to collaborative projects with Nelson Mandela.
Exhibitions and projects include the Museum of Fine Art Cuba, Modern Art Museum Mexico, Turchin Center for the Arts, The Lincoln Center, Lilia Arts Center Japan, MOCA Los Angeles, World Trade Center Osaka and the Center for the Study of Collage in France and others.
