I’ve been following street artist, Bradley Theodore on Instagram for some time now. And, if you’re not quite sure who he is by name, I’m confident that if you walked around NYC, in particularly, the Lower East Side/Soho area, you’ve definitely stumbled upon his work. He’s known for creating eye-catching and vibrant pieces, styled in a skeleton-like form, inspired by iconic figures known in the art & fashion world. You know, like, Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, Frida Khalo and Iris Apfel, just to name a few!

ACA Galleries in NYC is currently exhibiting his work and of course, I had to be there to get a up close and personal view.

Although the pieces were all exciting to see, my favorite one has to be the ‘Frida Feeling Freedom’ piece, and I might be bias because she’s my favorite artist but hey, c’mon! who doesn’t love Frida.

If I had to describe Bradley Theodore’s work, I would say vibrant, eerie, and symbolic. And, I just absolutely love it. If you don’t agree, go check out the work yourself! If you’re living or visiting NYC, Bradley Theodore’s artwork is currently being displayed until October 29th, 2016 @ ACA Galleries, 529 W. 20th street, New York, NY.
