Jason Brookshire has had a passion for custom paint and airbrush art since he was a small child. At the age of 12 his father bought him his first air brush and began to coach him on the basics of custom design. From this time on, Jason honed his skills and in 2005 landed a job painting semi-trucks for the CMT hit show Trick My Truck.
During his time at Trick My Truck, Jason painted 58 trucks and hundreds of parts over the shows five seasons. He not only refined his talents but also met contacts that led him to his ongoing career educating other airbrush artists.
Jason began teaching his skill building workshops in 2007 with the Airbrush Action Magazine’s tri-annual getaways and has continued since that time with new classes at the Art Circus workshops. These classes have served as a great tool for sharpening his skills as well as bringing new inspiration to his work at home.
When Jason is not teaching he is busy working on custom paint from his shop in Joplin MO. Since opening in 2009, B Street Paint Works has created a name for itself by generating many award-winning paint jobs and having several of them published in national magazines.
In 2014 Jason was invited to compete in the American Express Open “Ones to Watch” competition at the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas Nevada, which was a great experience and led to further success and business at his shop in Joplin, MO.
B Street also boasts its success to its partnership with V-8 Choppers in Miami, OK. Since beginning to paint for them in 2009, Jason has painted more than 85 choppers and trikes This has been an incredibly rewarding but also challenging job as the bikes often require intricate body work and paint jobs that mandate a world class finish and attention to detail. V-8 Choppers sells bikes internationally and has brought clients to Jason’s shop from as far away as Norway, Austria, Germany, and New Zealand.
Aside from his time painting, Jason is the proud father of two young boys and works hard to teach them the value hard work and following your dreams.
The world of custom paint is constantly evolving and for Jason it is an opportunity to learn something new every day. He continues today with a love for airbrush, his business and his family.
