Story
Introduction

Adrian Kelvin Pridgen is an American Scientist, Artist and film producer. He has enjoyed success as a Senior Scientist & Project Leader in the Research and Development of agricultural chemicals & the pharmaceutical industries.  He is the first  African American working for the pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline to have held the position; international technology transfer scientist. He was born in Augusta Ga, and raised in Goldsboro North Carolina. His mother, Lucille S. Pridgen, worked as a healthcare worker, transportation specialist and educator for the state of  North Carolina, and his father, James E. Pridgen was an ex Army Sgt, Healthcare worker for the state and small businessman before his death.  Adrian was raised a Seventh Day Adventist. And his charming and sly demeanor in school resulted in the nickname(s) "Pridge Jr, Ak, Lefty, Doc and Tiger". He graduated Eastern Wayne high school at 16 and received a B.S. degree in Biology from NCCU, Durham NC. He joined the Goldsboro alumni chapter  Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. And became a member of The American Chemical Society .

While on assignment in the country of France he started painting wonderful Acrylic  on canvas masterpieces. And soon had collectors seeking his work throughout the world. He retired at the age of 45 from GlaxoSmithKline and the other drug and chemical industries and now focus on his newly found talents of creating art and filmmaking.  He practice art therapy to relax and obtain a stable state of mind.

His art has been exhibited by many galleries and museums including the NC Museum of Arts in Raleigh, NC. His most recent masterpiece "The Angel" can be seen in the form of a mural located inside Torero's, located in Goldsboro, NC.

The works created by Adrian are becoming more and more valuable each day. Contact him for a chance to own one of his originals paintings or signed prints.
