Matador Review

A Quarterly Missive of Alternative Concern

Jamie Bradbury


The Battle of Baltimore

The Fable of the Bees

"My work explores the power relationships continually played out through forms of representation. I question who has the power to decide what gets represented, and to whom. These works mirror how collective narratives of traditionally marginalized groups continuously and increasingly become co modified through the lens of the colonial gaze."

Jamie Bradbury graduated from Central Saint Martins (2010) U.K with an M.F.A., and engages in a multi-disciplinary practice in visual arts, music, and independent research. His written work has been published in academic journals, whilst his visual works have been exhibited throughout North America, and Europe (Arte Fiera, Santorini Biennale, AACDD Festival London, Art Toronto, and AQUA Miami).

He's appeared in publications such as Canadian Art, Voir Magazine, CBC news, and Garageland, first coming to national prominence in Canada, participating on the T.V programme Star portraits. His works are held in private and public collections such as the Portrait Gallery of Canada, Debbie Moore M.B.E, and the ALDO collection. Jamie was recently shortlisted for the Salt Spring National Art Prize.
