Brooke Reidt



Unlike many starving artists in Los Angeles, Brooke Reidt wasn't looking to be discovered. But the quiet beauty spoke so loudly through her art—peppered on stickers, sidewalks, and bathroom stall doors around the city—that people couldn't help but listen. “I can't remember a time when I wasn't painting,” says Reidt, whose paintings and large-scale murals are a transformative experience, a swirl of geometric shapes and bright colors inspired by the artist’s jaunts around the world in search of inspiration. Bali has become a second home to the raven-haired artist as she gives herself over to wanderlust for months at a time. “I wanted to be able to create anywhere, so I travel with a suitcase full of paint and try to adapt to where life takes me," says Brooke.
