Adam Simon received an MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate Program at Bard College, following studies at Hunter College and the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting & Sculpture in NYC.  He has received several awards including a Curatorial Grant from Artists Space, two fellowships from Art Matters Inc., and an Individual Artist Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.  He has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions.

Simon states that, “for the past four years, I have used pages from stock photo catalogues as an element in my paintings…Stock photo catalogues interest me because they represent a generic and idealized version of the lives we live, a kind of blueprint for ‘how to be human now.’”
