Matt Adrian's lush acrylic paintings of birds range from the delightfully cute to the decidedly sinister, and their distinctive, often humorous titles juxtapose the purity of nature with the banality of modern human existence. Or something.
His artwork is collected worldwide and has been featured in major magazines, newspapers, books and design blogs and has appeared in numerous feature films and television shows.
There have been three books published that collect his artwork: IT IS FOLLY TO ASSUME MY AWESOME LIES DORMANT: THE PAINTINGS OF THE MINCING MOCKINGBIRD VOLUME I, I HAVE HEARD MY PRAISES SUNG IN SCREAMS: THE PAINTINGS OF THE MINCING MOCKINGBIRD VOLUME II and PROLONGING REVENGE THROUGH REINCARNATION: THE PAINTINGS OF THE MINCING MOCKINGBIRD VOLUME III. His book THE MINCING MOCKINGBIRD GUIDE TO TROUBLED BIRDS was published by Penguin Random House.
He lives in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, California with his wife, artist Kim Bagwill.
