Grace Brooks is a multidisciplinary, Toronto-based artist. She received her BFA in Drawing and Painting from OCAD University in 2016. Primarily working as a figurative oil painter, her art is a celebration of glamourous and ferocious femmes. While referencing a history of pinup art, she differentiates her work from a tradition of objectifying models and creating a narrative of submission. Aesthetically, her paintings are a reflection of her pop culture obsessions and draw inspiration from New Wave, makeup, film and softcore magazines of the 1950's and 80's.
