Adam Parker Smith develops mixed-media works in response to sites and situations. Infused with deadpan humor, he often creates visual jokes using found objects and materials that have been altered by the artist. Smith lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BA in Painting from the University of California at Santa Cruz and an MFA from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia; he also studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He has had solo exhibitions in Luxembourg, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, Rome, San Francisco and Tokyo, among other places. In 2011, Smith was included in Shift Mindsets at the Times Museum in Guangzhou, China. Past artist residencies include Triangle Arts Residency, the Swing Space Residency Program of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Sculpture Space, Elizabeth Foundation Studio Space, Djerassi Residency, and Atlantic Center for the Arts.
