Biography

The paintings of Pietro Adamo are abstract celebrations of the artist's admiration for the "unpredictable and inexhaustible record of life". Adamo abandons the monotony of conventional rendering of geometric forms through his textured surfaces and rough contours. In his passion to convey emotions, Adamo intimately works his artwork both applying a removing pigment to create a tactile quality. Layer upon layer of vibrant colors dynamically emerge and recede within the painting. This juxtaposition of presence is what gives Adamo's work its mood and sensational quality. He clearly delights in the unbridled, intuitive nature of his forms that enable him to evoke sensations and emotions. Adamo emphasizes his art's liberating quality: "I have to paint to speak without words, to express myself without restrictions, never relenting." One can find optimism and strength in his work as he combines sophisticated geometric spatial relationships with raw, emotional use of color.

Born in Toronto, Canada in 1955, Pietro Michele Adamo currently resides in the town of Keinburg, Ontario. After graduation from the Fine Art and Art History programs at University of Toronto and Sheridan College, Adamo went on to become an art professor at Chaminade College in Toronto. By 1997, his work commanded full time dedication. His work can be found in private and public collections throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.
