Adam Brooks Oil Paintings Capture Sentimental Male Moments

Adam Brooks oil paintings show how medium and message are intricately intertwined. Currently studying painting at OCAD with a background in industrial design, Brooks captures intimacy and masculinity in his work not only through the images themselves, but also through the emotion that goes into each and every brush stroke.

Brooks opts for a dark color palette, which adds to the seriousness of the work. Figures are distorted, commenting on the character of memories—they are fleeting and distorted, though we try to remember them.

A touch of emotion, a bit of darkness and also some sexuality, Adam Brooks oil paintings give a glimpse into the mind of an artist who has a lot to say, and the talent with which to paint it.
