Adam Harteau was born in Los Angeles, California in 1977. During his formative years, he lived and travelled with his family along the Western coast of the United States in a salvaged schoolbus that his father had reconfigured. The family later built and settled in a cabin near the treeline of the Angeles National Forest, where Adam lived off the grid without electricity until age 15. At 18, he moved to Los Angeles to attend Otis College of Art and Design, where he received a scholarship for fine art painting. He has remained in Los Angeles since then, balancing his diverse and eclectic artistic endeavors with grand explorations of the world. His travels throughout Southern Africa, Central America, Japan, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, New Zealand, Polynesia and a 13,000-mile road trip around North America in his Volkswagen Westfalia have all brought great inspiration to his life and work.
