THE ART OF KELSEY BROOKES

Kelsey is a former biochemist who attributes his raw style to an education system “that refuses to teach scientists to draw”. He abandoned biochemistry because “I thought I was going to be there for a few months to get myself some money. Three years later I was left wondering if I had become what I always despised – the funny guy at the water cooler … except not so funny. I was the confused not so funny guy at the water cooler.” Science’s loss is art’s gain and Kelsey’s powerful canvasses attract due attention whenever they’re shown, be it in California, London or Europe. The work’s potency arguably lies in the way its clash of ancient and ultra-modern references even drown out the sex and death which also features heavily. He describes his art as “an unrefined and some would say unskilled mix of sex, comedy and animals which is derived from a true passion for all three, except not necessarily at the same time.”
