Theo Bardsley is a self taught figurative painter currently based in London. His large scale portrait paintings are strongly laced with art historical references and are a collection of historical figures, friends in pubs and jazz musicians, all set in everyday casual scenes. The work merges the everyday with the historical, bridging the gap between past and present and creating paradoxes within the narrative. Theo’s work allows the viewer a look into their own life, a look at history, and a chance for the viewer to reflect on their own past. Theo has exhibited in multiple group exhibitions in Cologne and London.
