Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Adam Forfang looks to a wise cross section of enduring artistic legacies for inspiration, including Jean- Baptiste-Chardin’s sensitive rending of light and space and Wayne Thiebaud’s compositional use of image repetition. With a concerted focus on still life, Forfang enthralls his viewers by juxtaposing two dimensional shapes against three-dimensional forms and accentuating color, reflection, and pattern. Forfang’s work is currently represented by the renowned John Pence Gallery in San Francisco. He has previously exhibited at the Vose Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts, and the Triton Art Museum in Santa Clara, California. In 2016, he was awarded a Finalist position in the prestigious international ARC Salon. His works have been featured in publications such as Southwest Art, American Art Collector, and ZYZZYVA. He currently lives and works in San Francisco's Mission District.
