Adam Bradley is a Washington, DC-based sculptor who works primarily with the figure as a subject in works that deal with themes of fear, anxiety, and guilt. He has a strong background in figure drawing and constructs his sculptures from found materials, welded steel, wood and cast metals in a loose, gestural fashion that gives his figures nervous desperation.
Bradley was born and raised in Northern Virginia and earned a B.F.A. from George Mason University. After receiving his M.F.A. from the Rinehart School of Sculpture at the Maryland Institute, College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, he returned to Washington, DC to continue making and exhibiting his artwork. Bradley has been an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Art at the Catholic University of America since 2014 and teaches courses in Sculpture, Ceramics, 2D and 3D Foundations, and Drawing. He also teaches at George Mason University and Northern Virginia Community College.
