‘Dark Stage’ / In collaboration with Bandelion Theatre Group
In our main gallery we will be showcasingAdam Caldwell's new body of work. The new oil paintings for 'Dark Stage' are by far his strongest and most cohesive body of work to date. A game changer for this amazing talent out of the Bay Area. Please see below for details on a special talk with the artist and special performances from the theater troupe that inspired the new series.
Adam Caldwell studied art at Laney Community College, and then in 1994 received a scholarship to study at the California College of Art. After two years of study he took an illustration class with renowned artist and teacher Barron Storey, who inspired a passion for illustration and a more democratic view of art making than the elitist world of fine art. Caldwell then focused on a double major in fine art and illustration. While a student he began working as a Teachers Assistant and taught several substitute classes on his own. He received a BFA in illustration and fine art in 1998. In 2001 he began teaching at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
In addition to painting and teaching, Caldwell has competed in Martial Arts since childhood. He was the 2001 USAWKF National san-shou champion and has competed in amateur thai-boxing. He is an instructor at EBM kung-fu in Oakland CA. He is still pursuing his dream of being a guitar legend.
