Indianapolis, IN adamstarr


Adam Starr (b. 1994) currently lives and works in Indianapolis, Indiana. He specializes in abstract painting and photography.

He first started producing artwork after attending a photography class in 2015 while studying at Indiana University.

Adam feels spiritually called to create art. His practice is cathartic for him. The stream of consciousness method he utilizes helps him fully express and release his emotions.

The work Adam produces comes from a pure and vulnerable place. He is deeply inspired by the music he listens to and the movements that come out of this.

Regarding his paintings, he utilizes calligraphy pens and oil paint during this process. His process would be considered “stream of consciousness” or “jazz painting”.

He incorporates the emotions he is feeling during the time of creation using the emotional aspect of color and the rigidness of the black calligraphy pen. The themes surrounding his paintings include connection, spirituality, and love.

Regarding Adam’s photos, each one is similar to a painting, as colors compliment the chosen manipulated subject.

The mystic nature of Adam’s style moves the audience to feel its strength, providing a window into the heart of its creator.
