Not known for following traditional art rules, Adrian Williams is recongized for his quirky drawings and paintings that point toward the ridiculousness of North American culture. A founding member of Winnipeg’s Royal Art Lodge (1996 – 2003), Williams has become a staple for Winnipeg’s flourishing arts scene.

Working primarily in ink and paper as well as collage, Williams’ works are as humours as they are anxious. Created from folklore, historical objects and vintage print material his drawings offer philosophical and fantastical narratives of characters caught within their own discontent. Through a host of faceless characters each piece becomes its own morose and humorous reality.
