Natalie Durkin, producer of Sounds and the City interviewed Adam Mars last June 2017. Throughout the week, we will air never before heard footage of the interview after this introduction about “celebrities.”

Here’s a partial reprint of the Acrostic Interview by Adam Mars that we will highlight throughout the week:

TribeLA Magazine Acrostic Interview.1

Tagline: Give yourself and your work a tagline.
I hold a funhouse mirror up to culture and make people see their world more clearly.

Rest: How do you spend your time off?
I’m usually partying with friends, going to concerts, or watching the Dodgers.

Influence: What effect do you hope to have on us?
I hope to reflect our evolving popular culture in a way that humors and informs my audience.

Adam Mars lives and works in Los Angeles. He earned his MFA in Painting at Otis College of Art and Design. He graduated with a BA, with honors, in Art Studio (Painting) – with a Minor in Art History – at University of California, Santa Barbara.

Adam’s works are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Art and History and the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. He has exhibited throughout the United States at various institutions, including the Torrance Art Museum and the Laguna Art Museum. His first solo exhibition with Gusford Gallery in February 2013 was recommended by Interview Magazine as one of the top international shows to view that month. His work has also been featured in numerous publications like The Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Magazine, and LA Weekly.

In 2016 and 2014, Adam designed billboards for LAXART’s LA Public Domain Project, which were displayed on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood and La Cienega Blvd. in Culver City. He has also created site-specific works for the Museum of Broken Relationships in Los Angeles and the LA Art Fair.
