Biography


"I strive to capture complex emotions in their purest and simplest form.  The proper emphasis of form and gesture can result in a piece that connects with viewers on a personal level.  I have always had a great passion and fascination for animals.   As artistic subjects, they can be the ideal metaphors to convey the joys and tragedies of life.  I strive to make my sculptures modern, exciting, and personally relevant while drawing on a foundation of classical Italian art."
 
Mark Edward Adams was born in Tucson, Arizona and raised in a family full of artists and musicians.  Despite his initial artistic influence, Mark gravitated toward science and earned a degree in Chemistry.  While working as a scientist, Mark discovered his passion for sculpture and began his journey into the world of art.  He traveled to Italy to study classical sculpture at the Florence Academy of Art.  He continued his studies with a mentorship under the wildlife sculptor Rod Zullo.  His style evolved from classical Italian realism to a modern representation of animals and figures.  His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the country.
