Adrian Williams (b.1974) is a Canadian visual artist from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and holds a B.F.A. Hon. from the University of Manitoba. He was a founding member of Winnipeg's collaborative artist collective The Royal Art Lodge (1996–2008). The majority of the work produced by The Royal Art Lodge were small-scale drawings and paintings which often incorporated text. Generally, at least three of the members contributed to each piece of work in a spontaneous response to the previous artist's work on the page before stamp-dating the work. The group's work has been exhibited internationally including in England, Spain, Italy and France. Williams has since spent time producing work in Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles, Winnipeg and Berlin. His work is drawing based, usually on paper or wood, and often uses collage, paint, varnish and other miscellaneous material. Subject matter drifts between the philosophical, the despondent and the humorous. The artist conceives of his work as, essentially, failed poetry. Other creative forays include screen printing and music recordings of invented, generally ill-fated, musical instruments.
