January 23 – April 25, 2018
Born into a family of artists, Bradford Salamon worked as a professional illustrator, opening studios in Newport Beach, Costa Mesa and Fountain Valley before relocating to Los Angeles in 2013. Before his move, he exhibited at the Festival of Arts for eight years. His study of significant, historical painters has enabled him to develop a unique blend of classical and contemporary approaches to his method of painting.
This exhibit at foaSOUTH showcases his unique portraits of vintage objects alongside his painting “Red Billow Camera” which was acquired by the Festival of Arts Permanent Art Collection in 2012.
“Bradford’s current series, on view at foaSOUTH, includes larger than life paintings of vintage images and objects expressing a dynamic complement of texture and atmosphere that patently illustrate his signature style,” said exhibit curator Pat Sparkuhl.
