About the artist

Troy Brooks has been drawing women since he was two years old. He learned how to draw from sketching vintage movie stills. Troy grew into a very young “old film buff.” That narrative style carried over into his painting and without realizing it and began incorporating my own stories into these soft focused film noir scenes with femme fatale protagonists. Ultimately, Troy’s work tends to juxtapose a soft, refined feminine visual against the brutal energies in nature. 

Artwork Themes & Subject Matter

The women in Troy Brooks’ paintings are depicted in very civilized and sophisticated settings, but always in an atmosphere of tension. Often times they are caught in moments where something transformative has or is about to happen. Much of his work features women with animal familiars or wildlife symbology. Troy Brooks is interested in the contrast between a cultured etiquette and the unavoidable brutalities of nature.  


Troy Brooks’ work has been published in various publications including: Juxtapoz, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, Tattoo Life, Arabella, Miroir, Volition, Hey! Modern Art And Pop Culture, InPrint, Xtra, Creative Boom, Highbrow, Art Now L.A., The Power Of An Image by Chase Maenius.
