BIO: Terry Bradley
Terry Bradley was born in Belfast in 1965. His early life was spent growing up just off the notorious Shankill Road where his mother tried to keep him inside and away from the “Troubles” outside their front door. Bradley found a form of escapism reading Herge’s Adventures of Tin Tin and his work is still influenced by the black lines of the vivid drawings that illustrated the collection of books that he gradually acquired. He also spent hours in the attic room of his house listening to the then new pirate radio station Radio Luxembourg and imagined his travels and the exotic world beyond the realities of Belfast in the 1970’s. From an early age Bradley discovered that drawing calmed his nerves and that he could loose himself in the complexities of observing people and then recreating them on paper... Read more

BIO: Justin Vaughan
Justin Vaughan was born in 1974 and has worked full time as an artist since leaving The University of Ulster, recently returning home after several years living in Connemara and exploring the Irish landscape, a theme which has recently dominated his painting subject. A self taught painter who sold his first oil painting at the age of fifteen, Justin's imaginative style of artwork is instantly recognisable. Exhibiting mainly in Northern Ireland his paintings have found homes in private collections around the globe. With an approach to painting to simply to create a three dimensional image on a flat surface, his artwork comprises two contrasting themes; rhythmical Irish landscapes and colourful French themed paintings both of which are soft and vibrant in colour and detailed in content. "My painting style requires much patience and concentration using an old technique of under laying colours on canvas until the final smooth and aesthetically fine paint finish can be achieved, the simple line drawings that compose my paintings become careful blends of colour through tonal graduations that give an impression of shadows and distance, where everything is painted in a very controlled and precise manner".

BIO: Keith Drury
Keith Drury’s ‘When I Dream’ art series has become one of the top selling range of artworks for many of the UK’s largest city galleries with some series' sold out within a year. More recently Keith's artwork appeared in the TV series 'The Fall' with Gillian Anderson. As an art style it is unquestionably quirky and contemporary in its interpretation of the urban landscape and yet it refuses to be compromised, each artwork being created with meticulous attention to detail. Months of exacting work go into each picture and so the artworks often yield surprises to those who are eagle eyed or use magnifying glasses! Each print is a top quality Giclée print on acid free paper - each one printed at the studio itself and not outsourced.
Keith’s art has received a public national commission and is on permanent display to the public in Belfast City Hall. Commercially his art has found its way into every world continent, appeared in advertising campaigns, Jigsaws and luxury chocolate tins. His art has been used by the rich and famous but is created simply to be enjoyed and to be a talking point on anyone's wall. Perhaps we could summarise Keith’s art by amending Oscar Wilde’s famous expression ‘Art is too important to be taken seriously!’
Keith can not remember a time when he did not draw or make 'stuff' but his introduction into the more serious art world began when the owner of a prestigious gallery took Keith under his wing lending him works of international artists to take home and copy. On return the gallery owner would assess Keith's style and then test him with something completely different. Now Keith, after years of trying new things and mediums, has developed his own unique style.
