Adam Ace Velasquez

…is a Chicago-based artist, UI designer, and Art Director and has been designing for almost 15 years. During the day he’s full time as a UI Design Lead for a hotel waterpark resort. At night he’s a fine artist, photographer, digital artist, etc. Adam pretty much can’t stop creating, from visual pieces to even acting and improvising in the theater scene here in Chicago.

I started practicing my artistic endeavors at an early age and I’ve always been very focused on being visually alert. Though a lot of my artwork is digital, and also love to draw surrealism. Even though I lost the endless possibilities with creating digital artwork, there’s something more truthful when I hold a pencil to a paper with absolutely no plan and just seeing where my mind takes me. I enjoy drawing because it can often be full of beautiful mistakes and imperfect perfections.
