Adams, a native of New York City, rose to prominence from the downtown graffiti movement and exhibited alongside renowned artists Jean-Michael Basquiat and Keith Haring. He became the founding Creative Director of Def Jam Recordings, a prominent Hip-Hop label, where he co-founded the Drawing Board, the label’s in-house visual design firm. There, he created visual identities, album covers, logos, and advertising campaigns for some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Run DMC, Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Notorious, Maroon 5, and Jay-Z. Adams takes inspiration from various sources, including 60s pop art, sign painting, comic books, and popular culture.
