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.
