San Diego, CA, United States
It was seeing a Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition that got Dan Adams painting. Other influences are Picasso, Bacon, Schnabel and, not least, Dan's hairless American terrier, Nica. The San Diego-based artist has an uncanny gift for capturing personality in man’s best friend which is in full evidence in his 'Dog Beach' series of paintings. Dan has shown his work at the San Diego Museum of Art, Riverside Museum of Art, Escondido Performing Arts Center, Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, San Diego Art Institute, New Image Art, Bergamot Station, Santa Monica, California, and the San Diego County Fair, where he won Best in Show.
