Biography 

Adrian Cox is a painter living and working in St. Louis, Missouri. His studio practice involves a continuing exploration of transgressive bodies in figurative painting. In his recent work, he seeks to create a mythology of the grotesque, representing the morphic body as a heroic and empathetic subject.

Cox earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Georgia in 2010 and his Master of Fine Arts degree from Washington University in St. Louis in 2012. He has exhibited work nationally, including at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, the Illinois Institute of Art, and Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati. His paintings have also been printed in the nationally distributed publication Direct Art and the International Painting Annual 3 published by Manifest Press, and reviewed online by Hi-Fructose Magazine. He serves as an adjunct lecturer in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University.
