Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Adam Scott Rote’s early reminiscence of his childhood always involved create and artistic pursuits. An award-winning painter, who early in his career, established his talent by apprenticing with artistic masters in the fields of portraiture, airbrush, realism, and sign painting well before the digital age. Learning several different hands-on techniques. Adam was later able to combine this knowledge to bring a fresh approach to the canvas by working with acrylic, gouache, watercolor pencil, airbrush, and eraser in unison. Painting gradual buildups, like the old and modern masters, with transparent overlays brings forth the breathtaking originals you see today. Which is an extremely labor intensive process that can take months for the original.

In 2008 Adam caught the eye of Hollywood’s legendary stars and their love and admiration has made him the most celebrated and collaborated artist in history.
