ADAM MOSTOW

 

 

artist biography

Adam Mostow was born and raised in the city of Los Angeles, 1980. Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s in a low income single parent household with three siblings left resourcefulness and observation as key tools to his survival. With a bloodline spanning from Dutch, Russian, to Pacific Islander, and Cherokee Indian, along with being raised Jewish, Adam walks as a living reflection of his diverse city and lineage. The streets were his teacher, inspiration, and canvas. The little nature he had provided the same. His days as a young adult were spent in subcultures and their pastimes such as graffiti, pipe making and vision questing. These early traits combined with attending a local University’s Bachelor of Fine Art’s program in glass/sculpture, helped Adam sharpen his hand and design skills, thus contributing to the evolution of technique and craft, resulting in the actualization of his art.
