Adam is a long time cyclist. Growing up on the long roads and mountain bike trails of Northern California. So when Brompton called and offered a project involving live painting a canvas and a bike at the same time Adam asked “ where do I sign up? “ Life and cycling is not about the ride but about the journey. He wanted his bike to reflect that. Lots of over spray and small highlights of type in Adam Fu signature pink and blue. Both the bike and the canvas were on display at Brompton Junction in SOHO for September of 2018.
Gov Ball 2018 Adam painted 2 16’ murals to be seen over the festival weekend. He was super hyped to be invited to the party and hopes to return next year! Both pieces for sale on Adams store.

Collaborative piece with Annica Lydenberg aka @dirtybandits. Adam had the pleasure to paint with Annica whom used to share a studio with Adam. They were aligned in their outrage with the state of affairs with the US Government and Trump. The mood was apparent and the two artists and friends wanted to comment on it. To this day it is still relevant. Sadly…
More images and story coming soon.
