About Valerio Adami
Valerio Adami is internationally recognized for his seductively rich, psychologically complex paintings, through which he wryly examines Western civilization and modern society. He draws heavily upon the visual idioms of Pop Art, with its cartoonish imagery, flatness, and eye-popping colors. Though they lack visual depth, Adami’s works are layered with meanings; he uses potent imagery to symbolize specific themes, painting a lake to represent the subconscious or a woman in a boat to refer to the passage of life.
Italian, b. 1935, Bologna, Italy, based in Paris, France
