Contemporary artist Adam Stone was born in Hollywood, California in 1966. He grew up in the ethnically diverse and cultural melting pot of L.A.’s historic Miracle Mile district. A fertile ground for the early inspiration that would ultimately serve as the catalyst for his style of contemporary urban expressionism.
A self taught painter, he was born into a family of artists where art was not only a means of self expression but one of survival in and of itself. His parents were pioneers in the L.A. street fine art festival scene back in the early 70’s. At the age of 17, he began to experiment with collage assemblages and abstracts. He started selling these early works on the Venice Beach Boardwalk and after a couple of successful years, began to exhibit in many of the local Southern California Fine Art Festivals that his family helped refine.
