the art of Jacob A Brooks
Jacob Brooks is an artist based out of Nashville, TN specializing in bright, vibrant art. He works in a variety of media and prefers customizing non-traditional "canvases" such as guitars, skateboards, sunglasses, and anything that will hold still long enough. In addition to more permanent mediums, Jacob is well known for his street painting, chalk and pastel creations created on the street or sidewalk.
Jacob spent his childhood in a small town on the outskirts of Atlanta amid a backdrop of tattoo parlors, Harley rallies, Super Bike races, and good southern livin'. After high school he moved to Murfreesboro, TN, a college town just outside of Nashville. There he attended MTSU and studied Recording Industry Management. There he spent his time as an engineer in the school studios, playing in various bands, jamming with all sorts of musicians, and drawing constantly. After college he packed his bags and headed to sunny Florida, where he began his love affair with the Atlantic. He spent a decade soaking in the sun, creating art, and enjoying the Florida lifestyle before moving back to Middle Tennessee. All of these influences have culminated themselves into a unique artistic style.
