San Diego based painter www.kelseybrookes.com was the first artist I met in Berlin who can live of his free work. So the most obvious thing to do was inviting him for some some urban exploring and talk about paying the rent, waiting for inspiration, lightbulbs and the exploitation of glitter. Thanks to www.shotbyhardy.com for the pictures of Kelsey in his San Diego studio. For updates on more portraits follow me on twitter twitter.com/pindarodge+ More details
Kelsey Brookes took some time out before the opening of his current exhibition at Circleculture Gallery to tell us all about his path to becoming an artist before heading to Mitte to hang out and see his recent work at the Gallery. "I remember seeing Picasso for the first time as a kid and thinking, ‘hey this guy draws real shitty too! If he can do it maybe I can do it." (Kelsey Brookes) The whole interview and full version will be online within the next days on http://freundevonfreunden.com/ More information: http://www.kelseybrookes.com/ http://www.circleculture-gallery.com Idea & Production: FvF Video by Marcus Werner+ More details
