Hello and welcome to my Patreon page!



My name is Khaleb Brooks and I'm a mixed- media artist creating art that matters!

Through oil painting, collage, found materials and photography I discuss the political climate and collective memory of people of African descent. 

    

Unfortunately the art world has been slow moving when it comes to representing Black, POC and queer artists. As a Black Transgender artist myself, I have overcome many hurdles in creating sustainable work that not only promotes visibility but pushes communities to ask questions about structural oppression. 

   

Where will the money go?

1. Production Costs: 
Canvas, Paint, Paper and Brushes are all very expensive materials. As I develop my practice and make larger works, costs escalate. Through found materials I am able to cut some of these costs down but you'll be helping me with the basics!

2. Studio:
Creating new works of art requires a positive work environment. Yet a studio space, especially in major cities can be quite costly. Your contributions will also go towards a space for me to work and hold weekly creative workshops!

3. Transporting Artwork: 
Thankfully I have the regular opportunity to show my work in galleries and museums around the world! As I currently work mostly with independent galleries, I personally cover the costs of transporting my work. Your contribution will cut out a major stress when exciting opportunities to share my work with the world arise.
