Adam Griffiths

Adam is a Washington, D.C. artist exploring the boundaries of illustration, character development, and symbolic narrative. He received his B.F.A. in Video Art from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2004. Dwight was a participant in Transformer’s Exercises program for emerging artists in 2010, which culminated as an exhibition at Transformer’s gallery space. In 2011, Dwight and fellow illustrator Dana Jeri Maier mounted a 2-person show of drawing, painting and sculpture at Flashpoint Gallery in Washington, D.C. that mediated on adulthood and alcohol titled Off In A Corner. Dwight’s commitment to research resulted in works about, and in collaboration with Candance ‘Candy’ Lightner, the founder of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Adam has independently organized two exhibitions; The Final Girl at Washington Project for Arts in 2011 explored the horror and psychedelic film genres, featuring 27 video artists, a video art rental store, and a physical exhibition of work from 17 other artists. KING ME: Studies in the Uncivilized World, was installed at The Fridge DC in March 2012. This exhibition featured 37 works by 12 Washington, D.C. area artists, and reflected on symbols of power, the memorializing culture of the region, and the possibility of a future where the political and the abstract exist simultaneously, equally.
