Instagram: grumreapur

Brad's art can be varied as he experiences borderline personality disorder, some days methodically designed and applying tools to sculpture to throwing paint onto a large canvas to express his emotions. His most notable work is a character/art toy called the "Grum Reaper" which acts as a conduit for discussing and supporting others on their journey through challenging and difficult times./sf

From the artist:

Join me as I throw paint about like a lunatic and aim to get as much on the canvas, instead of myself, as possible. I have no idea what I'll be painting as much of my work is created in the chaos of the moment, with the music and atmosphere fuelling the moment in this unique setting.

I look forward to this event! It’s like nothing I have ever done before so I’m excited to accept the challenge. My style is vivid colours and self taught beauty
