Episode 81: Ryan Adams - Maine Painter & Muralist

June 7, 2022

In this episode, we had a lot of fun talking with Maine painter and muralist Ryan Adams. He told us about his beginnings in art, his favorite projects, advice to aspiring artists and business owners, how he defines success, and much more!



Ryan Adams is a painter and muralist residing in his hometown of Portland, Maine with his wife, Rachel Gloria and their two daughters. His background in traditional graffiti led him to creating large-scale mural work and hand lettered design and signage. His signature ‘gem’ style of work is a geometric breakdown of letterforms with shadows and highlights included to create depth and movement throughout the pieces. His pieces tend to be bold, colorful and clever; often including statements within. Currently, Ryan co-owns and operates a hand painted signage business, designs for a brewery, paints murals any and everywhere and exhibits his work as often as possible.
