"Killing US" Acrylic on canvas 20x16_2022
"I am tired of seeing another story about another human being killed! I wonder about their familes,friends,loves...when I am approached by WHITE POLICES I am on guard. How can you not be and being BLACK IN AMERICA! I want my community protected! I appreciate
Law enforcement and how passionate they are about their jobs! This atmosphere today is just crazy! Are we rag doll? Lets start with talking about differences through Love."-Jordan
"Kansas Spirits" 2022 (Acrylic on Kansas MAP paper collage,24x1x36in.) $1861.00(For the Year Kansas Became a State.)
"After a fun accident of ripping a Kansas Map I wonder what if! So I came up with an idea of representing my Home State my way! Not just another traditional landscape but still taping into those same elements like the animal representatives of Kansas. From the Bee in the foreground to the Face in the clouds in the background, this is a KANSAS styled paint that came to me to share with the world. So please, enjoy and encourage that wonder to wonder outside when you can."-Jordan E. Brooks

I’ve lived in Topeka and Lawrence, Kansas all my life. Heavily influenced from the campus of KU and an older under lining hippie vibe of that area, my surroundings have affected a lot of my artist purpose, to inspire and create. My website has allowed me to display my own mix of academic design with my own modern, conceptual, provocative socially conscious though drive. In 2011 I had my first international group exhibition at the Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Arts in Las Vegas, Nevada. I was honored to become a part of their permanent collection with “Gallery of Hearts”. This only inspired me to move forward! In 2013, I was blessed to be a part of 100 international contemporary artist from all over the world in my first New York exhibition in Historical downtown Harlem. “Power of perception” was the publication produced by this inspiring collection. In 2015 I was honored by my local city (TOPEKA,KANSAS) by becoming the 10th annual Aaron Douglas Artist of the Historical Aaron Douglas Art fair! It was surreal, but a dream to be acknowledged or referred to a childhood hero of mine, but only inspired me to move forward.
You can often find me at my (public art Space @ Amused Art Gallery located in Topeka’s growing Art district N.O.T.O.) From every Art-walk(First-Friday) too where I teach creative drawing lessons weekly! Stop by and visit (907 North Kansas Ave.) in N.O.T.O.! I am working on a new mini collective of paintings more importantly a number of illustration projects all written & designed by me that I am so freaking excited about!!!!! (Illustration page) It is amazing to be a proud recipient of 2018 International Raffaello Award Curated by Salvatore Russo & Francesco Saverio! These recent international/national and local achievements have only intensified my excitement for so much more. In 2018 I was selected to be one of 31 artists to contribute to Artsconnect's Brown Vs Board Mural project (Topeka,KS) Located north of the National parks Brown Vs Board Education Museum. It's been a pleasure to work on carrying out the vision of Michael Toombs and his amazing supportive Kansas City artisans. So please stay tuned for 2020 too see what your new favorite American Contemporary Fine Artisan has planned for your eyes and soul to feel.
