The son of a Baptist preacher, JJ Adams emigrated as a child from Plymouth in the UK to Cape Town in South Africa in the early eighties. Adams spent much of his youth around the studio of South African contemporary landscape artist Derric van Rensburg, where he discovered his love of bright colour and graphic art. JJ Adams studied graphic design at Cape College whilst working as an apprentice in `Wildfire Tattoos` a busy tattoo studio in central Cape Town.
He returned to the UK in 1998 where he furthered his study in commercial printing at the Plymouth College of Art and Design. He has worked as a freelance graphic designer and sign maker before finally breaking into fine art. JJ Adams uses a range of mixed media in his work from spray paint to hand painting acrylics, screen printing and digital matte painting as well as photography.
JJ is fast becoming one of the UK’s most talked-about artists. Adams uses a range of new and mixed media in his work which varies from spray paint, and hand painting acrylics to screen printing, collage and digital matte painting.
A note from the Gallery Owner: JJ Adams is unquestionably the most collected digital artist in the UK, his pieces are a really good size, well priced making them excellent value for money. While his originals often sell out in a matter of minutes his low products of limited edition prints make them very collectable, you will often find these trading for more money than originally purchased from the gallery on the likes of eBay. Every piece that JJ products have hundreds of layers of digital art in one finished article. The image produced will keep you looking for years to come, as well as so many hidden messages throughout.
