5. Kelsey Brookes
Kelsey Brookes was born in 1978. A formally trained scientist he now lives and works in San Diego as an illustrator and painter.
His art is an unrefined and some say unskilled mix of sex, comedy and animals...born from a true passion for all three (not always at the same time). He blames this raw, anxious form of art on the U.S. University system which refuses to teach its scientists how to draw.
His art can be found broadly throughout the US and Europe on a variety of media including apparel for RVCA’s Artist Network Program, prints for Pictures On Walls and within his hand made zines he always caries in his back pocket. Kelsey’s art is represented internationally by the Lazarides gallery (London).
He has also been featured in many pop culture and design publications such as Blood Wars, Happy, Staf, Re:Up, and Beautiful Decay.
