Adonte Clark

Listen as Adonte Clark and Russell Ihrig explore relationships between Clark’s painting, Capture the Awakening, and Thom Shaw’s painting, Today I am No One, What about 2 Hours from Now.


Inspired by the rich art culture of Chicago, Adonte Clark decided to tell stories through his abstract, expressionistic artwork. Often originating from one-line ideas, his work captures day-to-day interactions that are transformed into visual narratives about the human relationship to nature and the journey of life. Clark uses hidden elements to represent those relationships while allowing the viewer space for their own unique interpretation. He hopes that those thoughts, feelings, and perspectives can inspire someone and be enjoyable to many.
