About

The images I paint are metaphors for the adventure, battle, and beauty of life. Hopefully my art will intrigue, inspire, or connect with the viewers and their own story.
As a painter, I'm striving to hint at the mystery, complexity, and beauty of life and human relationships with hopefully a clever and subtle viewpoint. I let much of the narrative that undergirds my paintings happen off the canvas. The term, Narrative Reaiism, is helpful in explaining my approach. 

Lawrence McAdams was born in Southern California and lives in Newport Beach. When he isn’t painting, he is president of McAdams Group, a Branding, Marketing & Advertising / Web & Print Communication firm.
