David Bromley (born 1960, in Sheffield, England) is an Australian artist.

He currently resides in Byron Bay, New South Wales.[1]

Themes and inspiration[edit]

David Bromley's artworks have two clear focal points – the Boys Own adventure project and the Female Nude series.[citation needed]

He takes inspiration from childhood books, popular culture and artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Glen Baxter.[citation needed]

Bromley’s nudes portray the female form in contemporary fashion. He makes use of layering and texturing techniques while employing mediums such as metallic paint and leaf combined with black outlines on bold colours.[citation needed]


Since the mid-1980s, Bromley has had more than 30 solo exhibitions in Australia, as well exhibiting regularly throughout Europe, the UK, South Africa, Asia and the United States.[citation needed]

David Bromley was an Archibald Prize finalist for four consecutive years.[citation needed]


Bromley has been listed by the Australian Art Collector magazine as one of Australia’s 50 most collectible artists (in 2001, 2002 and 2009).
