Born in 1960 in Sheffield, England, David Bromley

immigrated to Australia with his family in 1964 and

emerged as a painter in the mid 1980s. Since then,

he has become one of the most recognisable and

innovative artists in Australia. Over the past 20 years

David’s work has fostered widespread acclaim and

notoriety in Australia and internationally. He has exhibited

on nearly every continent including Asia, Europe, Africa

and America.


In his practice, David has developed distinct themes

and unique styles of painting; his best known are the

nude female portraits and children’s series, but he often

explores with various mediums and imagery that portray

a certain whimsy. However diverse in his subject matter,

David’s work is enduringly figurative, daringly coloured

and executed with a graphic intention that is striking

and memorable.


Known for his portraiture-style art works, David Bromley

has set a very solid mark of his identity in the world of

art. For this art work, the renowned Australian artist

depicts a boxing boy in gouache and acrylic on French

hand made artist paper. Despite the simplicity in view,

you cannot deny the impressive precision and accuracy.
