The Butterfly Effect
Nic Adams
Mixed media, signed by the artist.

Honoring the 40th anniversary of the Rainbow Bar & Grill on the Sunset Strip, which has hosted rock and roll legends, including John Lennon, Elton John and Led Zeppelin, over the years.

Nic Adams created a piece celebrating Ozzy Osbourne for the inaugural GuitarTown on The Sunset Strip in 2010. Born in 1970 in Newport Beach and raised in Huntington Beach, Adams describes his parents as typical California hippie/surfers of the era. As early as 12 years old he began venturing to Hollywood to see bands such as X, The Ramones, Black Flag, Bad Religion, The Exploited, and countless others. Shortly after this, Adams borrowed a camera from his girlfriend and made creating images his passion. He has photographed bands and artists including No Doubt, Fugazi, Henry Rollins and Michael Franti, and worked as a fashion photographer and as an extreme sports photographer, publishing in Thrasher Magazine, Transworld Publications and Snowboarder. Additionally, Adams has worked as an interviewer and contributor for magazines, including Rage Magazine in Paris, and has collaborated on art and design projects with Dan Peterka for various clients, including Burton Snowboards, TJ Maxx and others. Adams studied at l'Université de Paris-Sorbonne and Orange Coast College. He is currently completing a series of artwork created from black and white Polaroid negatives shot on a Polaroid Land Camera 220.
