About


With over a decade of painting Los Angeles City Scapes, Jay Brockman continually captures the essence of LA with a brilliant and defiant handling of paint and perspective. If you want to understand Los Angeles and it’s many facets, simply view one of these paintings in person and stare the beast in the eye. It just might wink back.

Artist Statement

Between night and day, there is a moment, almost a breath before the sun dismisses the day and night begins.  We see it everyday but it never fails to astound, a sunset in LA.  The changing of the guard, people leaving work, people heading to work and the landscape of lights and moving cars create a fireworks display that burns for a moment.
