Kristian Adam

Kristian Adam is a Canadian born illustrator and artist. He exhibits regularly throughout Vancouver and in galleries around the world and has been featured in books and television. His paintings often combine themes of nature and invention from the humorous perspective of animals which he refers to as 'NymNums'. Dr. Seuss's body of work and a book called the Codex Seraphinianus—brilliant books filled with surrealistic and organic Rube Golberg-like contraptions— have helped serve as inspiration to creating his more recent landscapes and devices.

Born 1978 in Edmonton, Alberta, Kristian grew up on a small farm near Grande Prairie. Recurring themes of nature in his work are inspired from his childhood living in the country.
