Gregory Adamson is a renowned Southern California artist who has gained domestic and international acclaim for his mesmerizing, fast-paced art performances, where he paints to music with bare hands or brushes, creating huge masterpieces in just minutes. His subject matter includes historical leaders, sports legends, music icons, and other pop culture celebrities. In 2006, Gregory Adamson launched his performance painting career, Facing the Music, and 10 years later we are looking back at his creative journey, both as a performance artist and studio painter. His performance art has lifted his public profile, taken him halfway around the world, and distributed his work widely. Those paintings and other resulting commissioned works are in major corporate and private collections from Hawaii to New York to China. From the auction of his performance paintings at the events where they were created, Adamson’s work has also raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charitable organizations.
