My name is David Bravey, aka Grade One. I’m a veteran diagnosed with PTSD. I served with the Welsh Guards in Northern Ireland and in London doing public duties. Circumstances have seen me live on the streets of London for 18 months and experience stays in rehabs battling addictions. I started painting during a residential visit to Combat Stress.
My paintings reflect the feelings and emotions I have living with PTSD and my work has been a lifesaver to me.
