About the Artist

Adrian Armstrong is a multidisciplinary artist from Omaha, NE now living and working out of Austin, TX. Armstrong received his BFA from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln in 2014. His work expands throughout different mediums such as music, painting, and printmaking, but his primary medium of choice is ballpoint pen.

Artist Statement

Through portrait and figurative practices, Armstrong's work explores black identity and how the black body is perceived in predominantly White American spaces. He aims to portray what it means to be an African American living in modern America. Often using himself as an "every man" symbol, Armstrong's work touches on topics such as depression within the black community, systematic oppression, and identity erasure; but on the other side of the spectrum explores, nostalgia, growth, and success.
