The figure sits at her make up mirror and is definitely in a hurry. She is preoccupied with the art of precisely putting on lipstick, oblivious to everything around her. But this image is part of an older fragment, maybe a lost piece of old film. The quality of a time gone by is enhanced by the softness of the figure, and the cascading warmth of color. She is a reflection. She is at the mirror; always.

The vibrancy and spontaneity of Pietro Adamo’s abstract art is an unbridled expression of optimism and strength. And the critics and reviewers agree: “delicious impasto”… “sensual brushstrokes”… “sophisticated surfaces”… “moody”… “palpable textures”… “structured chaos”… “unusual juxtaposition of forms”… “haunting imagery”… “mysterious elements” and “a riot of sensational color!”

Available for the first time as Fine Art Canvas from The Greenwich Workshop, these limited Giclée editions see the freedom and vibrancy for which Pietro Adamo has received such acclaim.

Pietro Adamo
Pietro Adamo was born in Toronto, Canada in 1955. He enrolled in the Fine Art and Art History program at the University of Toronto and Sheridan College. After graduation, he took a position teaching art at Chaminade College School in Toronto. While there, he helped establish a strong visual arts department, one which saw many of his students go on to become prominent architects, designers, illustrators and fine artists. During his two decades of teaching, Adamo continued to paint and executed several private and public commissions of his work. The paintings of Adamo are a celebration of the artist’s admiration for the unpredictable and inexhaustible record of life. He abandons the conventional renderings of geometric forms through his textured surfaces and rough contours. Adamo draws influence from artists of all periods and from the world around him. Travel is an important source of inspiration, especially trips to Italy, his ancestral homeland. During these extended stays, Adamo is able to explore monumental art and architecture as well as the small details of the rural landscape. Adamo’s career as an artist has been a journey of continuous exploration and growth. His paper, wood and canvas have a constant audience. He also released a highly successful series of hand pulled prints and posters, as well as bas- relief sculptures. Today his works can be found in galleries worldwide.
