Adam Port has made a few appearances on our site, but only because he’s awesome enough to deserve it. Realist Art classifies a pretty badass trait of a Socialite, but when you mix in professional sports, it ups the cool factor exponentially. Adam has been invited to show off 5 of his pieces as adaptations of the Conlon Baseball Photography Collection that chronicled Baseball’s development in the early 20th century. The show is this Monday at the Openhouse Gallery and The Campus Socialite is giving it’s support and showing you a little of what Adam can do.
Port has created works of many professional athletes including Michael Jordan, Ray Lewis and Carmelo Anthony. As you can see from the paintings in the article, the difference between them and an actual picture is practically un-detectable. At first glance, I thought he was just a some-what talented photographer. At second glance, I realized the truth which is Adam is an extremely gifted artist with an eye for detail that even a writer like me can’t fathom.
Like I said, the exposition will be held this Monday at the Openhouse Gallery on Mulberry Street in NYC. The event is unfortunately invite-only, but our hope is this will be a huge step for Adam in his quest to becoming a true art legend. To see more of his work, check out the paintings below and Adam’s personal website at AdamPort.com. Socialite Approved.
