About

Peter Bradley Cohen made the transition to art full time 3 years ago, but began making work as a kid where he was hugely inspired by abstract expressionism, pop and post modern work. He also started collecting at the age of 13 when he acquired his first Motherwell and has continued acquiring along the way with a collection that outstrips available space. Prior to his current art practice, he spent 30+ years as an advertising leader and worked at several large multinational ad agencies and worked at Microsoft Corporation for over 10 years leading global advertising. 

Peter shows at Boston Art and Kabinett in Boston, Corey Daniels Gallery in Wells Maine, Newport Contemporary Fine Arts in Newport Rhode Island, 530 Burns Gallery in Sarasota, Florida and Kaller Fine Arts in Washington, DC. In the short time Peter has been practicing his art full time he has been in over 20 groups shows and juried competitions. He serves on the Advisory Board of the ICA in Boston where he is on the Acquisition and Exhibitions Committee. He is also a member of the Cambridge Art Association and SOWA in the South End of Boston. He currently lives in Hillsdale, NY and practices in nearby Hudson.
