Adam Feibelman was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He took to the art of graffiti, a path that would eventually take him to the California College of Arts and Crafts (recently renamed the California College of the Arts). His studies in printmaking and illustration won him the Yozo Hamaguchi award in printmaking, and a BFA with distinction. It was at CCAC where Adam came to know the massive world of art. Most important for him was the sweep from classic American photography, which he took as a realistic portrayal of the history of America, of the life and times of its people, to the freedom of modern and contemporary painting. Based on those influences, and reflecting his fast-moving imagination, Adam's paintings have taken on a satirical look, challenging concepts of modernity, using spaces as a language to describe forgotten places, and light to evoke their story and context within the present, our time. In the years following his formal education, Adam's knowledge of printmaking and savvy ability with spray paint developed into a love and talent for painting using stencils. His stencils represent hundreds of hours of meticulous work and fine detail -- the hallmark of his works. He continues to live and paint in Oakland, CA, and exhibits frequently.
