Adrian Armstrong is a multidisciplinary creative from Omaha, NE now living and working out of Austin, TX. Armstrong received his BFA from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in 2014. He is also the co-founder of Brown State of Mind, an Austin based organization dedicated to pursuing the interests of creatives of color and their ideas. Through portrait and figurative practices, Armstrong’s work explores identity and what it means to be a black person living in modern America. His work touches on topics such as depression within the black community, systematic oppression, and police brutality; but on the other side of the spectrum explores fashion, love, success, and growth.
