Ready for some explosive art? Let San Diego-based artist Kelsey Brookes amaze you with his beautifully complicated pieces. With a background in microbiology, surf culture and folk art, Brookes creates prisms of raucous color, bold imagery and timeless motifs. “Each work is a microcosm of life itself, where smiley-faced characters and wild animals cavort with abstract forms and splices of color to form something infinitely complex and visually joyful,” he says on his website. What a treat for the eyes!
