Gallery 222 presents an exhibition of sculpture, paintings and custom furniture by New York City based artist and designer Bradley J Ehrsam. The exhibition showcases Ehrsam’s signature tricycle sculptures, 2D work on wood panels, and unique custom furniture.
Internationally collected artist, Bradley J Ehrsam, for over two decades has pioneered the art of transforming tricycles, reclaimed objects, motorcycle parts, and wood into sculpture, custom furniture, and paintings.
Born in Chicago and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, New York City based Bradley founded his art, design, and studio business, Bradley Ehrsam Designs, in 1995.
With vivid chrome and vibrant color, precision of blown glass and wood, Bradley pushes the limits to assure that each trike, each sculpture, and each custom furniture piece fuels the imagination. Bradley fabricates each piece with the combination of metal, carbon fiber, wood, blown glass and the incorporation of reclaimed objects including carbonators, gears, cam shafts, and barn boards among others to bring life to each work of art.
Bradley’s paintings have a soulful depth with the use of mixed media on wood that energizes and calms simultaneously.
While receiving his Masters in Fine Arts and Public Practice from the Heron School of Design, he combined his passion for art and design with his passion for empowering youth through the creative process. He expanded his work into a public practice forum connecting underserved communities, particularly the community of youth in underserved schools lacking art programs, with the creation of public art and the creative process. In 2012, Bradley and his wife co-founded BEME Creative, LLC that incorporates fine art, sculpture, custom furniture, and philanthropy. The BEME Creative – Art and Soul initiative was launched in 2016 to empower at-risk youth through visual art.
Bradley’s work has recently been featured in the Wall Street Journal, The nJournal, and The 22 Magazine (Volume III).
Bradley and his wife Mary live in New York City.
