ARTIST: ADAM OEHLERS

Adam Oehlers was born in England in 1980. He lived his childhood in Ireland and Australia where he later graduated from the University of South Australia with an Honors Degree in Illustration in 2002. In the same year he moved back to the United Kingdom and has been working from there ever since. Adam has exhibit his art worldwide in Australia, USA and the UK and has also a number of books published. These titles include 'Dear Little Emmie', 'A Babble of Words', 'The Cinderella Project', and his interpretation of the classic text 'The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner'.

Artist statement: '-I like to think that all of my images and sculptures belong to the same little universe. Built by the stories of each of the characters that inhabit it. It is a world that is not so different from ours, a grim, cobbled place that is trapped in its own time, with some little elements of odd magic which creep in at the edges.'
