Becoming: Bradley Theodore

By Matt Pizzano | Documentary
Meet a street artist who taught himself to paint to survive dark times.

As a child, Bradley Theodore wanted to be an artist. But he didn’t know how to paint. When he grew up, he became involved in the graffiti scene. Street art wasn’t thought of as art back then — he did it for fun.

Then, three years ago, he suffered through the darkest moments of his life. That’s when he decided to learn to paint. Other artists wouldn’t show their techniques to him, so he taught himself by watching videos online.

One of his first works was a portrait of Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld, which would go on to make him one of the most famous celebrity artists. Now, he often paints fashion icons, such as Kate Moss as a skeleton. But he also has murals of Prince and Bill Clinton.

This story is a testament to how you can turn your life around through sheer dedication to self-teaching and self-promotion.
