Fresh from a successful show at Art Basel, our friend Brooks Kossover let us take some pictures of his studio in Baltimore’s famed Copycat warehouse. Brooks is currently enrolled at MICA, but he maintains a rigorous studio on his own and has begun showing with some prominent national galleries. Portraits of contemporary musicians and creative friends are his most known works, but he brings a technique very rooted in old-world oil-painting. All photographs are courtesy of Tedd Henn.
Recent success means Brooks can support his community in a big way – he purchases nearly all of his supplies locally and works with fellow-up-and-comers collaboratively as well as purchasing their work. He also works with new MICA students in his studio on core painter’s tasks like stretching and preparing canvases.
