Fine oil paintings
Bill Braden was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1958. He moved to Hawaii in 1970 (Kailua High ’75). Bill studied at the Royal Academy of Arts in London in 1976 and received a BA from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island and Rome, Italy in 1980. Even though Bill studied at these top art schools he feels it was painting on location in Hawaii that taught him to be a land and seascape master. His first exhibition was called "Lanikai Perspectives" at a Kailua gallery in 1978.
Bill was selected from over 200 applicants to paint “The Best Beaches of Hawaii” for the City and County of Honolulu in 1990. This official recognition of him as arguably “the Best Beach painter of Hawaii” is his place in art history.
