"Stay Strong, Fight On" By Ryan Adams

Created By: The Avenue Concept


Ryan Adams’ “Stay Strong, Fight On” on One Ship Street offers a message of hope, encouragement, and resilience. In an interview with WPRI, Ryan said, “With the majority of my pieces, since there is a statement embedded within, I try to put something out to the world that’s not only personal, but [is something] that other people might [also] relate to.” In the wake of The Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, Ryan felt especially drawn to rallying cries on behalf of his two young daughters, however he wants anyone viewing and interpreting his mural to keep fighting against any encountered struggles, from the uniquely personal to society’s challenges at large.

Ryan Adams is a painter and muralist residing in his hometown of Portland, Maine. His background in traditional graffiti led him to creating large-scale mural work and hand lettered design and signage. His signature ‘gem’ style of bold, colorful and clever work is a geometric breakdown of letterforms with shadows and highlights included to create depth and movement throughout the pieces. Ryan paints murals anywhere he can, although he maintains a strong connection with the Boston area, where he went to school and met his now wife, fellow artist Rachel Gloria.

Ryan Adam’s is the fourth mural rotation on One Ship Street.
