The annual Pilsen Open Studios event is always an exciting opportunity to see the work of local artists from the Pilsen neighborhood and beyond. But this year’s open studios were especially exciting because it was the first time works from the HEX by ADR were featured as part of the Expo Collective pop up gallery. It was the first time Adrian got to see peoples’ reactions to the work and answer questions about where the inspiration for his paintings came from.
One common question he got was where the faces in HEX by ADR came from. Adrian answered, “I take people I know and combine their features with random people I find on the internet. I mash up their faces and then paint them. They’re monsters in that way.”
