This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Adam Forfang is most noted for his still-life painting with the goal of breathing new life, a bold contemporary look, into a centuries old genre.

He was born into a creative family.  His father was a designer, and his mother a quilter and needlecraft professional.  He began drawing at an early age, and in highschool became inspired by the painting of Spaniard Francisco Goya.

He graduated from the Academy of Art College in San Francisco in 2001, having received solid training in painting techniques.  Of particular influence was his teacher, Randall Sexton, and later Will Wilson, whom he met through an art gallery association.  As a student he won five first place awards at the Academy of Art College Annual Show.  In 2000 he was awarded a scholarship from the American Society of Portrait Artists.

Forfang is inspired by his life in the Bay Area because of the close-knit art community, and the influence of the impressionist movement, fueled by the special natural light of the environment.
