Adam has a wide variety of styles from abstract performance painting to impressionistic landscapes. Most recently he has been working on his body of work called R3VOLUTION, which is a series of portraits of people who have a positive message of Love and Liberty.

If you put a Van Gogh portrait, a piece from Picasso’s blue period, and Shepard Fairey’s “Hope”, into a blender, strained out the Obama, and poured it onto a canvas you would get one of Adam’s R3VOLUTION portraits.

R3VOLUTION

Ron Paul

“All initiation of force is a violation of someone else’s rights, whether initiated by an individual or the state, for the benefit of an individual or group of individuals, even if it’s supposed to be for the benefit of another individual or group of individuals.”

“The most important element of a free society, where individual rights are held in the highest esteem, is the rejection of the initiation of violence”

“When one gets in bed with government, one must expect the diseases it spreads.”

~Ron Paul

R3VOLUTION

Ludwig von Mises

“A lasting order cannot be established by bayonets.”

“Human civilization is not something achieved against nature; it is rather the outcome of the working of the innate qualities of man.”

“The state can be and has often been in the course of history the main source of mischief and disaster.”

“Whoever wishes peace among peoples must fight statism.”

~Ludwig von Mises

R3VOLUTION

Lady Liberty

R3VOLUTION

Adam Kokesh

“You, as a free, beautiful, independent human being with inalienable rights, own yourself. As a result, you can do what you want with your own body and own the product of your labor. The implication is that it is morally wrong to INITIATE force against someone else OR their property, because to do so is to violate their rights. Therefor, all human interactions should be free of force, fraud, and coercion and people should be free to exercise their rights, limited only by respect for the rights of others. When you learned “don’t hit” and “don’t steal,” it wasn’t “unless you work for the government.” When you learned thou shalt not kill, it wasn’t “unless your dear leader gives you a gun and a uniform and a one way ticket to the other side of the world.” Government is force, an opinion with a gun, and force is a poor substitute for persuasion. Governments frighten us into thinking we need them, but with knowledge, philosophy, and technology, we are empowering ourselves and each other to have the courage to move past the paradigm of statism and restrain government to only moral uses of force, at least until we replace it with the cooperative, free market solutions, that will soon render it obsolete.”
~Adam Kokesh
