Adam pursued a Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in graphic communication, which he forayed into a successful career first as a graphic designer, then as an entrepreneur and marketer. For 16 years he owned and operated an award-winning design/marketing agency in Houston, Texas where he merged his passion for art with the advertising world.
Rediscovering his love for found objects with a focus on reusing items that would otherwise be discarded, Adam dove back into his art. In 2008, Adam sold his firm and moved to Los Angeles where he launched his art studio. Since that time, he has brought to life ideas using everyday items of commercialism and textiles, crafting his technique of reinventing movie poster vinyl, books and every day fashion into new compositions.
Commercialism, books and movies defines our culture and parallels history. They are like a visual time capsule, a great escape from the everyday. Adam Nisenson uses these subjects to reassemble them into a new story.
He deconstructs misprinted or overages of movie posters, commercial vinyl and paper, and transforms them into new narratives.

About Adam Nisenson
With his combined training in fine art and graphic design, and his fascination with the detritus of popular culture, Adam Nisenson works with vinyl movie posters and denim jeans, crafting them into wall pieces and sculptures that play with the history of their use. To make what he calls his “Movie Poster Weaves”, he cuts vinyl movie advertisements into strips and weaves them across a canvas frame. By combining different posters in each weave, he re-crafts the filmic narrative they advertise. In his words: “Movies define our culture and parallel history. They are like a visual time capsule, a great escape from the everyday, so what better subject could be reassembled into a new story?” For his “Denim Paint Impressions”, Nisenson impresses paint-saturated blue jeans onto canvases, creating compositions that capture “the unique story that each [jean] has to tell.”
