I painted this work in July of 2006 as the presidential campaigns began to gain momentum. Needless to say, it’s more relevant today than I expected.

Back: If you could choose a past literary/art/music movement to be a part of, which would you choose?
Because of the current nature of my work, I don’t think I would fit in well in a past movement. However, I think I could adapt to the ‘60s pop art movement pretty easily.

Energy: What fires you up?
Bad art in big-name galleries, good music in any venue, hanging out with friends and family and interesting strangers, and David Bowie.

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. This is part of that project. His 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.
