Using a synthetic palette, Badham creates bright, bold visions of the world around him. His work celebrates the colour and wonder around us and how we --human beings-- interact and fit within the natural world.

Rhythm and repetition are his permanent attraction points, while he has a very distinctive way of capturing the human body and movement. His artistic practice, including rapid sketches developed to larger paintings, has allowed him to get inspired from and work in unique environments such as dance halls, theatre stages, ballrooms, or Jazz Clubs. The moving body in all these works has an astonishing vibration, achieved through skilful expressionistic games between light and shadow.

His artistic genealogy in approaching nature counts from 18th-century British landscape painting, up to now. His trees’ foliages are in a sensitive dialogue with Constable’s naturalism and his rolling form of clouds own a glimpse of Turner’s skies. At the same time, his colourful, picturesque syntheses keep a quality reminding of recent Hockney’s multicoloured and playful contemplations on landscapes. Deeply inspired by British painting tradition, National Heritage and history, Badham desires to bring back a romantic view of wildlife and countryside.
