"We first learned of Mark Adamany's excellent work through one of our restaurant customers.  In Madison, WI, Mark's American flag mural, Visible from the interstate highway, has become a landmark in our community.  We've had numerous requests from individuals and groups to have photos taken at our location.

Mark's "trompe l'oel' murals at our Rockford plant have received many compliments, and provide a creative and unique entrance to our facility. 

Mark is easy to work with, professional and reliable. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a unique, eye-catching design ."

"Mark Adamany's work was done in a timely manner and he was very professional in his work. Mark's attention to detail and work of art he created for us has provided an exciting experience for my guests to this day.

After 15 years of his work being displayed in my bar, I still have guests coming in weekly excited about what they see...His work has given my business a unique atmosphere that I have not seen anywhere else!

I would highly recommend Mark Adamany. We could not have asked for a greater artist to complete the idea of our establishment."

"I'd seen Mark's work  around town, most notably at Peak Fitness. When I first saw his murals there, I said to myself that I wanted him to paint one at our new clinic. I contacted Mark and conveyed to him the general vision of what I was looking for. What followed was an absolute shocking, jaw-dropping interpretation of what I had in mind. I was speechless! I could not have fathomed a more cutting edge portrayal of what we actually do at a physical therapy clinic. I guess that's what an amazing muralist does...creates a beautiful work of art that tells a meaningful story about what it is representing. It truly is to this day breathtaking and a source of pride within our 6 physical therapy clinics."

"In 2008 Mark Adamany painted several large murals in our showroom here at Anderson Rock River Block. He was a complete professional and a joy to work with. He helped guide us through the design process and together we came up with an excellent concept. His finished murals incorporated the history of the Ford auto line as well as our town. They are quite a conversation piece and an excellent ice breaker with our customers. We were excited about this project and his work did not disappoint--the finished product turned out even better than we had hoped. We would highly recommend Adamany Art & Design."
