Artist Statement

My works explore social subjugation through media both pushed upon and created within UK towns and communities. I am a Scottish artist working largely in Sculptures and ‘Recollage’ which are created after extensive research into local areas; their stories, media, advertising and graffiti.


Bryden (b. 1982 Irvine, Scotland) lives and works in London. Having received no formal education, he discovered a world of Contemporary Art through publicly accessible collections.
