Ep. 37: Artist Adam Turman, Celebrating Minnesota Icons thru Art

Ep. 37: Artist Adam Turman, Celebrating Minnesota Icons thru Art

Perhaps best known for his bold illustrations that riff on everyday icons with stylized takes on all things Minnesota, from the BWCA to Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, artist Adam Turman is a true state treasure. Adam works with major brands such as Mall of America, Surly Brewing + Pepsi, independent businesses + private collectors to make art part of our everyday.

Born in California, Adam moved to Minnesota when he was 10 years old. But ask him where he’s from and he is quick to reply that he is Minnesotan. In his words, “Wherever you go through puberty, well that’s where you’re from.”

Want to know what ‘deep local’ means to an artist? Wonder what it’s like to quit your day job and follow your passion? Can asking for free kegs of beer launch a career? Curious where the very best people watching is? Need advice for getting started?

Adam covers his career, family, love of beer + advice for those starting to follow their passion. You can find more about Adam at www.adamturman.com.
