s.o.t.r. recently got a chance to get a look into SoCal artist Bradford Lynn’s studio for another instalment of our ‘studio visit’ series. Lynn makes creepy-cool art with a nod to the mysterious that resonates as much as it dabbles into the unknown.
Using a mixture of acrylic, spray paint, gouache, and colored pencils, his various styles convey his artistic range. In the eye-catching, life like piece The Disconnect, a tangled scene is captured that’s likely to feel relatable in many ways. In contrast, Seeking Magic denotes a dreamy, pastel-tinged earthy scenery while Breaking and Transition2 diffuse eeriness and pain amidst the soft color backdrop.
His fondness for peculiar monster-ish, tentacle-y things is also apparent through pieces like Transition1, Burger2 and Cream, which add a dash of the unusual to typically ordinary objects. His portraits are equally noteworthy, as seen through the darkly creative Tyler and the impressively detailed Reggie Watts and Elio. Full of cryptic images, it’s art that’s many things but forgettable.
