Jason Brooks

I recently discovered Jason Brooks, a British artist, who is both photographer and painter. This oversize portrait (yes, it's a painting) of Sir Paul Nurse, a Nobel prize winning scientist, was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery, London. It was installed in the gallery in May, 2008.
Brooks painted a 9' x 7' portrait of a tattoo artist (detail below) that also hangs in the NPG.
