"Fabulous art supplies shop which has everything any artist could possibly need. Staff are extremely helpful and the art gallery section has some truly inspirational artwork on display.
"This shop has a great selection of paints, brushes etc I will be back again to get more fabric pens :)"
"This really is where the artists go to get their various supplies. If you need art related materials then this place is certainly likely to meet your needs. Bradbury Graphics is like a more specialised version of the upstairs of Easons in the city centre. You're much more likely to get the correct size or width of canvas here than you would elsewhere in the city. There is also a superb range of varied oils and acrylics, much wider than anywhere else I've seen in Belfast. I called in here a few weeks back to get a few canvas (tiny little ones to do a series of basic modern colour pieces for my walls) Prices are a little on the high side but if you want the quality and range it's difficult to go elsewhere really."
"Perhaps my proudest moment to date was when I was in Primary six, a mere 10 years old, when my teacher selected myself and three other girls to...*drum roll please*...start writing in pen instead of pencil! Yes, it was a proud moment indeed. Approximately three years after the initial pen event, my class became subject to a second wave of incredible pen-related incidences...the introduction of scented pens! Wow, wow, wow. In every smell you could possibly imagine - from popcorn to melon, cola to bubblegum - we just could not get enough of these beautifully smelly pens. Understandably, I deeply appreciate the need for stationery (particularly pens) in one's life. Of course, there is much more to Bradbury Graphics than pens. Artists can avail of the canvases and paints, card-makers will be in seventh heaven, and for the organised among us, there are diaries galore. Prices are on the slightly higher side, but if ever I need to satisfy my pen addiction, I know where I'll be off..."

"As a younger man I harboured some modest artist ambitions so when I first moved to Belfast I grew to love this shop. Now re-located for a looong time now it's good to see they kept the original name and the shop floor space has expanded accordingly. Even if your not of a particularly artist bent a visit is recommended to browse the large selection of cards and prints. For the more serious art crowd out there, the stock and selection of paint, papers, stencils, brushes, pencils etcetc is quite staggering. Just out at the back of Boots give it a go. Pro: Manna for the serious and not so serious artist. Cons: This stuff can get pricey."
