Brindley was active between 1884 and 1909, during which time he exhibited in London at the Royal Academy, Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, Goupil Gallery, London Salon, New English Art Club and Society of British Artists, a society in which JW served as President from 1886 to 1888. Brindley also exhibited at the Royal Society of Artists in Birmingham.

In 1889 Brindley was among those included in the preliminary preparations for a meal to be held at the Criterion on 1 May in celebration of JW's honorary membership of the Royal Academy in Munich (#00631). At this time he was living at 8 Highbury Grange, W.

In 1901 there was an 'artist painter' called John Brindley, aged 41, born in Bath, who was living in Hampstead. This was probably the same man, John Angell James Brindley.
