ARTWORK STYLE & PHILOSOPHY
His style is diverse but uniquely identifiable with geometric lines, exciting colors, and introspective subject matter. Adam’s newest series, Apollo 42, is named after his main inspiration Cy Twombly’s famous work, “Apollo,” which was made 42 years ago. Each piece in the series is an emotional exploration of our shared experiences in life and the humanity that brings us all together.

In 2008, he was on SOFI Magazine's “33 Emerging Creative Artists You Need to Know” and was featured in his first Basel show at the (then) new Red Steakhouse. Since then he’s been selling and showing art around the world. His pieces can be seen in homes and stores from Los Angeles, California to Frankfurt, Germany and is featured in the National Trust for Historic Preservation for work he did with the Miami Marine Stadium during Art Basel 2018.
Adam has been featured in everything from Time Out New York to Glamour Italia to CNBC.
