Busker of the day – Adi

© John Gellman

Adi is a busker with a background. Before moving to Asheville nine years ago, he was a monk in Greece, Israel, India, and Nepal before spending five years in the Philippines. Now, he teaches martial arts. I can’t help but think of David Carradine’s Shaolin monk, Caine, who was a gentle martial arts expert who kicked ass in the wild west on TV in the seventies. Bottom line – don’t mess with his tip jar. Adi plays a soulful guitar when he busks downtown, and he brought it along for his portrait in my Flatiron Studio.
