Adkins’ work has been called daring, exciting and controversial. Adkins was first asked to show his work while in Philadelphia but, says Adkins, “I didn't have the confidence”. The artist became more confident when he was asked by one of the curators of the internationally renowned digital showing, “Cyberotika 2004” to display his work. That showing has brought the artist to the attention of galleries such as Fuentes and has increased the demand for his work.
