Born in Leicester in 1969, Adam showed an early artistic talent, which would eventually lead him to graduate from Kent Institute of Art and Design in Maidstone with a First Class Honors Degree.
Following his graduation in 1992, Adam worked on several freelance projects for art galleries and magazines whilst developing his own style of work. In 1996, Adam decided to commit himself to painting on a full time basis. His confidence was soon rewarded by invitations to exhibit at many prestigious galleries throughout the UK and the highly successful launch of his range of limited editions and original silkscreen prints. Adam's first major London exhibition was held at Harrods Picture Gallery in June 1998. Not only was it enjoyed by a large number of specially invited guests but also the show was a resounding success.
Adam draws his inspiration from many sources, oceans and coastlines being particularly appealing due to their romantic nature. His unique view of the world, his simple stylized images using rich colors, texture and thought provoking narratives, continue to take art world by storm.
This young artist's tremendous talent has gained him the prestigious John Solomon Trophy for Best Selling Artist of 1998 followed by the accolade of Best Up and Coming Artist for 1999 by the Fine Art Trade Guild. With further shows planned and new limited editions and silk-screens available, the future does indeed look very exciting for this talented artist.
"There is tranquility in my pictures which stems from a combination of inherent simplicity and lyrical narrative."
