Worthing locals may have noticed my painting Message Of Undying Love being used in the current issue of Here & Now magazine > – because nothing inspires romance like a neon advertising space lit-up atop a now-demolished, and forever unloved, brutalist carpark!
This is the painting in all it’s glory – currently available via BEARSPACE ART > London
I have already had a number of enquiries about whether I will be producing a print edition of this painting. It is something I may consider in the future – an A2 size signed and numbered giclee print would retail at £150 – If you would be interested, please complete the form below.
People keep asking me when I’m going to show some of my paintings in my adopted hometown of Worthing. The time has come…
‘In memoriam to the concrete and steel fortress of the once-proud Bed King’
neon paintings by Dominic Bradnum
Control Gallery, 7 North St, Worthing BN11 1ER
OPENING NIGHT – FRIDAY 08 JUNE – 6PM-9PM – ALL WELCOME
selected works on show throughout June 2018
As Teville Gate is reduced to rubble, I exhibit my latest paintings capturing the final days of this municipal concrete behemoth just before the heavy machinery moved in.
The paintings depict the brutalist environs as night draws in – derelict, devoid of life – a scene you probably shouldn’t enter. And yet something catches your eye: the incandescent glow of neon poetry – messages that hint at romance and obsession. Messages that may or may not have ever been there.
Control Gallery is perfectly located for showing these works: affording a view from its window of the mechanical dinosaurs as they bite and tear away at the concrete and steel fortress of the once-proud Bed King.

Pssst! Fancy getting your hands on one of my glowing neon art prints for less than half-price? You’re in luck, I’ve extended my promo offer on this stunning new edition until the end of June.
I released this limited edition (50) art print at the beginning of May to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the student and worker uprising in Paris in May 1968. Ne Travaillez Jamais (trans: ‘Never Work’) was an infamous slogan inscribed on a Left Bank wall by Guy Debord, The slogan was one of many reproduced on posters and banners by the underground press at the Sorbonne during that spring 50 years ago.
You can buy my Neon Graffiti (for Guy Debord and The Situationist International) giclee print direct from me at the ’68 friendly price of £68.00 + postage.
Each print is signed and numbered on A2 size, archival quality cotton-rag paper with hand-torn deckle edges, and it really does seem to glow!

This contemporary art print is a direct, high-resolution giclée reproduction of my painting ‘Neon Graffiti (for Guy Debord and The Situationist International)’. In this piece I appropriated a slogan “Ne Travaillez Jamais” painted by Guy Debord across a wall on the Rue De Seine, Paris (circa 1953). It translates literally as “Never Work” and was still legible in ’68 when it was co-opted (along with many other ideas of the Situationists) and became one of many slogans mass-printed and distributed on posters, leaflets and placards in the student revolt of May that year.
This brand new limited edition print is released in a signed and numbered edition of 50 on A2 350gsm archival quality Somerset Velvet cotton rag paper, with hand-torn deckle edges. It is available at a very special introductory price of £68.00** until midnight on 31 May 2018.
(**after this date the price will revert to the gallery price of £150).

More about the print:
The print is a direct, high-resolution giclée reproduction of my painting Neon Graffiti (for Guy Debord and The Situationist International). The text is based on a slogan painted by Guy Debord across a wall on the Rue De Seine, Paris (circa 1953). It translates literally as Never Work and was apparently still legible in ’68 when it was co-opted (along with other ideas of the Situationists) and became one of many slogans mass-printed and distributed on posters, leaflets and placards in the student revolt.
