Ryan Adams is a Portland Maine artist, born and raised, where he lives with his artist and designer wife and their two daughters. His background in traditional graffiti led him to creating large-scale mural work as well as hand lettering. His signature “gem” style of work is a geometric breakdown of letterforms with shadows and highlights embedded within, to create depth and movement throughout the pieces. His pieces tend to be bold, colorful, and clever; often including playful statements. Currently, Ryan co-owns and operates a hand-painted signage business, designs for a brewery, paints murals all around the northeast, and exhibits his work as often as possible.
