“USA fine artist Rob Brooks is a contemporary American painter who brings Social Realism back to the forefront. Born in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1962, Rob has been a full time professional artist for 26 years. Educated at the Art Institute of Boston, Rob studied under Nathan Goldstein and received the Academic Achievement Award at his graduation.
Rob began painting urban figurative narratives that combined the abstract composition elements of his coastal works with the abstract psychological elements of our increasingly isolated culture. As communication shifted away from the personal to email, cell phone and texting, Rob saw an abstraction of reality that he captures in his well-orchestrated paintings.”- paraphrased from Brook’s website
