Loops by Michael Brooks Jr.

The Loops Story

My fascination with art and technology started at a young age. Photography, design, and digital art have always been gateways to create the universe in my imagination.

As the world of NFTs unfolded before me in late 2020, I found myself enamored by the concept of provenance through the blockchain—a major cornerstone for the future of digital collectibles. I was head over high-tops for this new paradigm and I couldn’t stop thinking about creating my own art collection.

A few weeks later, I was watching my nephew play with a toy I once cherished as a kid. This simple moment brought back memories of how free my imagination was back then. The toy's overlapping lines and vibrant colors became the foundation for the Loops style.

I've always been open to how technology can help me grow as an artist and how it fits into my overall process. Earlier this year I began incorporating AI into some of my work, training it to produce a similar style to my original loop paintings. Some of these outputs serve as one of the many layers that create each piece.

When it was time to share Loops with the world, I felt a mix of emotions—excitement, but also fear of failure and rejection. Sharing your art is a big step for any artist, and this collection is my way of stepping into the arena and waving to everyone. My hope is that my story will be the inspiration someone else needs to put their own work out there. I'm so thankful for opportunity to share my work with all of you. Thank you for being a part of it.

Loops is a celebration of the twists and turns of the creative process and an invitation to tap into the well of youthful imagination that we all still have.
