ADCO (Adam Newman) is an emerging Los Angeles-based artist.
Born and raised in New York, Adco's love of photography began at a young age. His first camera was put to use photographing Manhattan, the Seagram Building being a favorite subject. Lured by Hollywood, he moved to Los Angeles in the 1990s and began a successful career as a television producer. However, his passion for art and architecture never waned. In his spare time he wrote articles for magazines about forgotten neighborhoods and mid-century obscurities.
Devoting more time to his art, he began to print his photographs, and fell in love with the transformation of something digital into something tactile. His prints were quickly noticed and soon, he was invited to join the Los Angeles Artists Association. He was featured in juried exhibitions at Gallery 825 in West Hollywood in 2016 and 2017. He was also chosen for the American Institute of Architecture Artwalk for both 2016 and 2017.
