Mark Bradford is best known for his large-scale paintings made from materials that he gathers from the streets around his Los Angeles studio. Using both collage and décollage techniques, Bradford creates abstract works that can be seen as topographies of the city’s physical as well as social, economic, and cultural landscape. Bradford’s work has been featured in preeminent museums such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Tate Modern, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among many others. In 2009, Bradford was the recipient of the MacArthur Genius Award.
