BK Adams is an arts phenomenon from Washington DC whose paintings and sculptures incorporate abundant bold colors and found objects, such as bicycles and chairs. His work centers sustainability, synthesizing everyday objects into eccentric one-of-a-kind pieces. In the early days of his career, Adams focused on monumental sculptures for alternative art spaces. Nearly all of Adams’ work implores a visual movement of avant-garde expressionist abstract. His colorful, expressive workmanship reflects a life’s journey with a specialty collection that embodies Washington DC’s rich history and culture.
Adams is prolific: His recent exhibit at the Smithsonian, titled “Exercise Your Mynd — BK Adams I Am Art,” included more than 50 pieces. He usually wears paint-splattered clothes and iconic details. He says, “I’m into details. I’m into making a small detail big and living it big. Celebrating a small thing like a small moment. Those are the things that turn my world.” After showing in galleries around the world, Adams is finally headed back home. outterman vs innerMAN opens on June 12 at 7 PM at the Honfleur Gallery. The opening reception will begin promptly after the Distinguished Artist Award is presented next door at the Anacostia Arts Center.
