Having been rejected from the RA Summer Exhibition, I have a painting in this year’s Salon Des Refusés*

23-26 June
SPACE, 129-131 Mare St, Hackney, E8 3RH
more info & opening times >

* The Salon Des Refusés takes its cue from the original 18th Century “Salon des Refusés” which showed works – by artists including Manet and Whistler – rejected from the official Paris Salon exhibition, this contemporary show features works rejected by the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016.

I will be showing the latest in my neon ‘Drip’ series: Drip 6 (For Barnett Newman).


I Think Of You And I Smile (crop)An image of my painting I Think Of You And I Smile has been included in a community project on Worthing’s 1930s Streamline Moderne pier.

Art On The Pier‘ was unveiled a week ago, and will be in situ until May 2017.

My piece is one of 50 selected by Creative Waves, and on display – alongside 2 other projects ‘Appear On The Pier’ (featuring ‘selfies’ created by local school pupils) and ‘Post To The Coast’ (a postcard response project) – in the open-air galleries along the centre of the pier.

Signed and numbered print editions of I Think Of You And I Smile are available from Subversion Gallery, Glasgow and Art Republic, Brighton, as well as Sticks Gallery, Portsmouth (for a limited time).

Solo Show, Garbo's, Southsea (installation view)
I was recently selected for a small solo exhibition at a gallery space in Southsea.

Dominic Bradnum – NEON
Early May – 04 July 2016
Garbo’s Gallery Space, 11-13 Albert Road, Southsea, PO5 2SE

Here are some enthusiastic words they wrote to introduce the show:

“We fell in love with Dominic’s work on seeing it. His paintings of neon signs, juxtapose the traditional painterly medium of oil paint with the vibrant newness of the electric neon sign. Dominic’s work cleverly recreates [neon’s] affects and appeal through oil paint, even managing to recreate its haunting and ethereal glow against the darkness of the black.“

Sticks Gallery are also stocking 3 of my print editions (I Think Of You And I Smile, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, The Last Bastion Of Hope) for the duration of the exhibition at their main gallery in Osborne Mall, Fareham, PO16 0PQ

I have a set of 4 new neon paintings currently showing at 45 Park Lane as part of a group exhibition alongside fellow WAC prize winner Kirsten Baskett, with works by members of the 45 Park Lane Artists group.

I’ve been hunkered down finishing new paintings for a group show at 45 Park Lane next month. All very last minute, as I was only approached to take part 3 weeks ago. Hence the lack of posts/updates recently.

I will be showing 4 new works, including this one:

Later in the month, I have been coaxed out of DJ semi-retirement to play some French records at the inaugural Hastings Mon Amour night. Top billing will be a screening of Truffaut’s sublime ménage à trois Jules et Jim, with my questionable DJ skills before and after.
