A Philadelphia native, Dick was raised by a tight-knit tribe of pygmy jews in a middle class south Philly neighborhood called, The Italian Market. At the early age of 11 years, Bredman became infatuated with the writing on the walls of his modest urban environment. Using a less than adequate digital point-and-shoot the young child began to document these walls and a few years later, at the age of 15, he became one of the many names on the walls. Since those early days, Dick has continued to paint on every surface possible as well as documenting Philadelphia graffiti and urban culture. Stay tuned for more photography and film segments.
