BIO

Adam Lofbomm is a visual artist who works primarily in photographic-based mixed media. Originally hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, Adam grew up with two multidisciplinary artists for parents, but is otherwise self-taught. He has lived in Annapolis, Boston, San Francisco, and Seoul, South Korea. During the decade he spent in Seoul, he created and directed Laughing Tree Gallery and Laughing Tree LAB, two alternative art/performance spaces. At a Seoul Museum of Art residency in 2010, he began fusing urban textures and street art with the human form by means of incorporating video projection into his studio shoots. Now a resident of the Chicago Arts District, Adam is forever wandering but not lost in his new favorite city.
