Like Knows Like: Kelsey Brookes

Like Knows Like is a well-conceived documentary project that delivers compelling video profiles of creatives from around the world. Among the videos is this piece on Kelsey Brookes, a San Diego artist who makes colorful abstract works based on his understanding of neurobiology and the effects of drugs on the brain. Brookes, whose work we have admired for a while, describes the visual effect of his paintings as being akin to “taking LSD while looking through an electron microscope at LSD.” He comes off in the video as a super-smart artist/philosopher/surfer. Great viewing, watch above.
