Brooks Salzwedel

Brooks Salzwedel has an amazing name and creates some amazing art. I first learned about Brooks art through the belt buckles he crafted for his company Shane On You. His work is a combination of graphite, tape and resin, which in the end give his work this amazing layered feel which is totally spooky and beautiful. The pieces above are title Tangled, Radiate #1 and Radiate #2, respectively, and were made in his usual method with the “frame” being the end of a pipe. Never would have guessed.

Brooks is also part of a show coming up at Gallery Nucleus called Momentum alongside Tessar Lo, Tiffany Bozic, Chigi, Ina Kyung Lim and Veronique Meignaud. Lots of great people involved so it should be a good show. Click here for more info.
