Bradford J. Salamon: Featured Artist June 2019

Bradford J. Salamon

Featured Artist    |    June 2019


           Bradford J. Salamon has fine art degrees from Orange Coast College and the Art Institute of Southern California. In his twenties Salamon was a sought-after commercial rock-and-roll poster artist, as well as the official artist for the Grammy Awards. The artist later turned toward fine art, gaining fame as a celebrity portrait artist and representation from Orange County galleries such as Peter Blake Gallery. Salamon’s work is in private and public collections, including the Orange County Museum of Art, the Laguna Art Museum, the Lancaster Museum of Art and History, the Abraham Lincoln Museum, and the permanent collection of the Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University.

          Salamon is fascinated by inanimate objects because of their story-keeping. These seemingly unremarkable artifacts of humanity bring the viewer back to a different time, filled with the gleam of prosperity and nostalgia. Out-of-date iconography and discarded old bottles take on new life, giving us a fresh perspective through a historic lens. Nuances like the humor in false promises only add to the histories these paintings tell us about each item, the people who used them, and ourselves.

            Salamon’s artwork has been in publications such as American Art Collector, the Los Angeles Times, ArtScene, and Art World News. Most recently, the artist was included in Face to Face, a 30-year survey of portraiture at the Bakersfield Museum of Art. Salamon lives in Monrovia, CA with his wife, Kathy, and the two youngest of their 3 daughters.
