Bradley’s escapism from a troubled Belfast came from reading Hergé’s Adventures of Tin Tin. His art is influenced by the black lines of the vivid illustrations in these tales. He often imagined travels and the exotic world beyond the realities of Belfast. Bradley discovered that drawing calmed his nerves and he could lose himself in the complexities of observing people and then recreating them in his own way on paper.
Terry’s interests lie in both art and fashion. Ever an eye for the aesthetic Terry opened his own clothes shop in the trendy university area of the city. The shop was named Retro and soon became a leader in fashion for the clothes conscious of Belfast City.
Terry is a multi-talented man and his collaborative work means that his work goes beyond the painted canvas. Take a look at his projects here.
Here is a selection of his beautiful work.
