Presenting Manifold Editions’ first publication with renowned American artist, Bradley Theodore, published to coincide with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee year. Eternal Queen is series of two etchings with multiple layers of relief printing, inspired by Theodore’s painting of Queen Elizabeth (2017), which presents the Queen in profile, as she can be seen on the English stamp, wearing the Diamond Diadem. Eternal Queen is part of an ongoing series by the artist, depicting royalty from both past and present. Theodore is widely recognised for his street murals of figures from fashion royalty, most notably skeletal depictions of Anna Wintour and the late Karl Lagerfeld. He depicts the Queen in the same expressive, graphic style, using highly saturated pigments while hinting at her skeleton underneath; a recurring theme in Theodore’s works through which he intends to “portray the energy, individuality and soul of the person.”

The Artist

Bradley Theodore

Bradley Theodore (b. Turks and Caicos) is an American artist whose style of painting is rooted in his early days as a graffiti artist in New York and his career as a graphic designer. Theodore’s large-scale murals can be found on the streets of New York City, Tokyo, Paris and Milan, depicting cultural icons, such as David Bowie, Kate Moss and Anna Wintour. Theodore’s vibrant, expressive portraits typically reveal the subject’s skeleton beneath; something which the artist refers to as “an act of living”, intended to confront the viewer with art-historical themes of mortality, memory and celebrity. Bradley Theodore has exhibited extensively in Europe, the US, UAE and Asia, and has also collaborated with major international brands to date, including Rolls-Royce, Google, Puma and Lego.
