New York based artist Bradley Theodore opens his first UK solo exhibition this week in Mayfair. 

Widely recognised for his vibrantly coloured skeletal figures, Theodore has painted everybody from Kate Moss to The Queen, Mona Lisa and Kendall Jenner in his distinctive 'Dia de los Muertos' style. We love his work. 

In his early days as a street artist Theodore's stunning murals could be found decorating walls from Tokyo to New York, and as such, comparisons have been drawn with legends like Jean Michel Basquiat and Banksy. Unlike the elusive Bristolian however, Theodore actually invites viewers to his gallery to watch him paint, citing his fans as the most important critics of his art. 

Today you're more likely to find Theodore working on a project for celebrity fans such as Marc Jacobs or Cara Delevingne, but accessibility remains an important aspect of his work. 

Son of the Soil, the artist's debut UK show, will run for a month over two floors in Mayfair's Maddox Gallery. Works featured include depictions of David Bowie, Mona Lisa, The Ball of Marie Antoinette, Audrey Hepburn and Coco Chanel. 

Bradley Theodore: Son of the Soil is at Maddox Gallery, 9 Maddox St, Mayfair, London, W1S 2QE from 28th April - 28th May 2016.
