Bradley Hankey's minimalist art series pay homage to the landscape, lights and mood of Los Angeles. The painting set is titled "#instalite #losangeles" and is made using the artist's candid Instagram shots. Once photographed. Bradley Hankey's Los Angeles photographs are covered in paint and re-imagined as the main works within this minimalist art series.

Bradley plays with light and filtering techniques to digitally manipulate his canvases. He transfer his base image onto large-scaled wood canvases that are finished using an oil paint medium. The result is an art series that marries photographic and artistic inspirations. Blending contemporary and classic themes, these works will appeal to fans of modern art as well as those with an appreciation for Instagram captures.
