Adrian Cox (USA) lives and works in St. Louis, Missouri. Cox received his Undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and his Masters of Fine Arts degree from Washington University in Saint Louis, where he currently teaches.
Adrian Cox’s work forges a mythic narrative around a race of beings called the Border Creatures. By casting these creatures as romantic heroes, he shows the Monstrous and the Bizarre to be sympathetic subjects.
Cox has exhibited his work widely, recently including the Mildred Lane Kemper Museum of Art, Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles, and Modern Eden Gallery in San Fransisco. In addition to numerous online reviews and articles, his paintings have been featured in print in Anatomy Rocks: Flesh and Bones in Contemporary Art as well as Hey! Art Magazine.
