Bradford J. Salamon has a fine art degree from Orange Coast College, followed courses at the Art Institute of Southern California and has taken several private workshops from well known international instructors. In his early twenties became a successful commercial rock and roll poster artist and in a short time became the official artist for the Grammy Awards. Turning his attention to fine art in his 30's and painting portraits in oils, Bradford was soon represented in many of Orange County’s finest galleries including Peter Blake Gallery. Major acquisitions followed at the Orange County Museum of Art, Laguna Art Museum, Museum of Art and History, the permanent collection at Chapman University and most recently The Hilbert Museum. Publications about his work include reviews in ArtScene, Art LTD, Los Angeles Times, Riviera magazine, Coast Magazine, O.C. Register, American Art Collector, and notably, essays by critics and curators in the book Orange County Tastemakers.
In 2013 Salamon was honored with his first solo museum show at the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster Ca. And most recently was included in a 30 year survey of portraiture titled “Face to Face” at the Bakersfield Museum of Art. Bradford lives with his wife and three daughters in Monrovia Ca
