Artist of the Month : Adam Deal

Adam Pernell Deal is an illustrator / painter who lives in Knoxville, Tennessee. A country boy through-and-through, his unorthodox renderings reflect worlds and scenarios unseen by most outside their dreams. His imaginative style and complicated imagery emanate joy and pain, but most of all, a longing for something impossible to hold from where we stand.

His preferred medium is the combination of ink and watercolor. Unless under the direction of a particular project, he’ll usually rely on his unconscious mind to guide his hand; a technique referred to as surrealist automatism. The result: bewildering landscapes of strange geometry and bizarre figures that blur the lines of flesh and stone. As the artist states, “If I can take a picture of it, I have no interest in reproducing it through any other artistic medium
