We welcome legendary artist and designer Cey Adams as he joins us for his debut RUN featuring works from his recent Trusted Brands exhibition. Adams worked as the Creative Director at Def Jam Recordings for over 20 years and has designed countless logos and merchandise for Beastie Boys, Dave Chappelle, Run DMC, Sean Combs, Jay-Z and many more...

"The whole idea behind my Trusted Brands series was that I wanted to revisit many of the iconic logos of my youth. As a way of reconnecting to those things that were familiar. These pieces are mostly made of handmade fiber papers from India and Nepal. I wanted to do something that rivaled my friends that use spray paint and connect with my graffiti roots, but I didn’t want to do what everybody else was doing. I thought it would be interesting to challenge myself to use a medium that I have never used before, and collage really spoke to me." - Cey Adams

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Cey Adams and 1xRUN.

FOLLOW
Cey Adams, a New York City native, emerged from the downtown graffiti movement to exhibit alongside fellow artists Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. He appeared in the historic 1982 PBS documentary Style Wars which tracks subway graffiti in New York. As the Creative Director of hip hop mogul Russell Simmons’ Def Jam Recordings, he co-founded the Drawing Board, the label’s in-house visual design firm, where he created visual identities, album covers, logos, and advertising campaigns for Run DMC, Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Notorious B.I.G., Maroon 5, and Jay-Z.

He exhibits, lectures and teaches art workshops at institutions including: MoMA, Walker Art Center, MoCA Los Angeles, Pratt Institute, Stamford University, Howard University, Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, High Museum, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Mount Royal University and The University of Winnipeg in Canada. He recently co-authored DEFinition: The Art and Design of Hip-Hop, published by Harper-Collins; and designed Def Jam Recordings: The First 25 Years of the Last Great Record Label, published by Rizzoli. Cey's work explores the relationship between transformation and discovery. His practice involves dismantling various imagery and paper elements to build multiple layers of color, texture, shadow, and light. Cey draws inspiration from 60's pop art, sign painting, comic books, and popular culture. His work focuses on themes including pop culture, race and gender relations, cultural and community issues.
