FEARLESS

The journey to painter and digital artist Adrian Franks’ first solo show, Suspicious Prisms + FEARLESS, started in 2011 with a simple request from his wife. She wanted a portrait, a silhouette. As he worked on the painting he considered his wife, Nicole, and her accomplishments. She had propelled herself from a small town in Georgia, put herself through college and followed her dreams to New York City, where she had a burgeoning career as a food culturist, radio host and cookbook author. In his mind, that made her fearless. That was the spark. The Brooklyn-based Franks began to recruit everyone he encountered who was boldly, fearlessly pursuing their dreams. Those first sittings (Franks photographs his subjects first) led to bold, graphic, dynamic portraits done in mixed media on canvas and mason board as well as digital illustration.
