"For 'The Heart Vs. The Mind in a Fight to the Finish', Adam5100 has created artwork that again pushes the limits of the medium of hand-cut stencil artwork. The show features photorealistic and figurative stencil paintings (sometimes using up to 9 different hand-cut color separations), shadow installations, sculptures, prints, and a 48 square-foot outdoor mural. His work takes on a modernist approach, using traditional yet revisited and refined techniques that are truly his own. Adam’s unique voice amid the final result is purely contemporary, yet his reverence for history in both technique and subject matter is palpably universal."

Everybody should definitely check out this show. Adam's best body of work. The mural on the outside of the gallery is awesome his new use of sculptural elements and light is taking his already amazing work to the next level.
