Adam Green


Adam Green’s paintings are novel yet sophisticated. The continued presence of ornamental, hypnotic patterns draw from his love of Mexican and African iconography. He takes alternative reference from vintage commercial images, pulling together diverse elements to achieve a quirky, but dynamic composition. Humour flows throughout all of his work, giving the underlying complexity a more approachable edge.

Adam’s influences, motifs and use of pattern provide fascinating appeal, but primarily, it is the physical process of putting paint to canvas that drives him. It is from this starting point that everything else flows and it is here that he shows incredible tenacity in his application of paint. Adam is an emerging  artist with a mature approach.

His paintings have been shown at the Royal Academy and he has exhibited regularly in London and the South East.

In 2012 Adam showed at The Korean International Art Fair in Seoul. He was the highest selling artist of the entire fair and will be returning to exhibit in Korea during September 2013.
