Born in Dartford, Kent, in 1970, as a child David Bray would draw images of space travel, where he would depict himself and his friends visiting other Planets and Universes. As he grew older he began to explore a dark, egotistical fantasy world, which is still apparent in the work he makes today being influenced and inspired by a wide range of artists: from sculptor Allen Jones, comic artist Eric Stanton, erotic photography by Helmut Newton and Araki and paintings by Gustav Klimt and Alberto Vargas.
Using basic drawing tools, such as pens, pencils, and paper, Bray creates delicate and time-consuming drawings which explore emotion, utopia and a world of fantasy through his subject matter of the beautiful and erotic, but the unattainable female form. His compelling works reveal his lifetime love of drawing and a very active imagination taking the viewer into his dark, emotive world of fantasy. Bray has also had a successful commercial career since graduating in 1992 from Central St. Martins, in London with a degree in Graphic Design.
