Brooks Anderson, a fifth generation Californian from a family of artists and musicians, graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from California State University in Northridge, studying at that time with established artists of the Los Angeles art scene.
For a decade, his oil on canvas landscape and seascape paintings were on exhibit and purchased in New York City at three prestigious galleries, and whose work was collected by the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, OK, and by seminal private and corporate collections around the world. In 1996, Brooks lived for a year in the south of France, completing fifty luminous paintings of the region. He devotes himself full time to producing evocative and compelling Contemporary Realist paintings.
“Anderson’s editing of physical reality is sensitive and shrewd and aims for maximum verisimilitude… His images are extraordinarily illusionistic,… are stamped with a uniquely painterly identity and presence… Only carefully conceived and lovingly executed paintings transform the raw material of nature in such serene and subtly romantic pictorial projections.”—Theodore F. Wolff,
