Born in 1968 in Rotherham, U.K., Jason Brooks obtained an MA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and Design and now works and lives in London. Brooks is closely associated with the generation of artists who emerged in Britain in the early nineties to great international acclaim.

Jason Brooks recent work explores old masterpieces and anonymous found paintings, adopting the same techniques, images that he reworks, crops and repaints. It is a way of looking at art history through the eyes of others who have looked at art history. On a very simple level it affirms the continued faith that painters retain in the medium.

Previous exhibitions include a solo exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London (2008) and key exhibitions including 'New Neurotic Realism', 1998, and 'I am a Camera', 2001. In 2015 Marlborough Contemporary, in collaboration with Black Dog Publishing, published Perpetual Orgy, a major overview of the artist’s work, written by Michael Bracewell.
