J. Adam Stewart
- Anchor hair stylist of the Parlor @ i.d. Lab
- Resident artist
A natural born artist, Adam has been creating art since childhood.
His work, while ever evolving, often turns to themes of playful images on organic backgrounds.
His first professional exhibit at the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Fuqua Orchid Center was fittingly titled “Orchids and Frogs,” and captured the garden’s inhabitants in oil and resin on laquered fabric. This Freshman exhibit gave him insight into the direction his work would lead him. Working with a variety of media including: oils, lacquered fabric, wood, and marble allows his canvas to inform and inspire each individual piece.
Adam’s next body of work, titled “Surreal Safari,” combined exotic animals with manufactured elements creating playful narratives and surreal imagery. These landscapes explore a world where the lines of reality and fantasy coexist.
“Verbs,” Adam’s third series is a refreshingly witty collection of illustrious images presented as single objects. Further contemplation reveals the clever object-verb relationship to the viewer. The translucency of these objects once again allows the lines of reality to be blurred into fantasy.
The essence of Adam’s entire body of work evokes a spark of joy, a moment in time captured and surrounded by nature’s elements.
Adam was featured as an Atlanta art “scene stealer” in the December 2011 Atlantan magazine for his most recent “Creases and Folds” collection. Explore more of J Adam’s collections at his dedicated portfolio site.
