Themes and inspiration
David Bromley's artworks have two clear focal points – the Boys Own adventure project and the Female Nude series.
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.
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.
Bromley has been listed by the Australian Art Collector magazine as one of Australia’s 50 most collectible artists (in 2001, 2002 and 2009).
