VALERIO ADAMI, oil on canvas, 1968
several works in the collection

The Italian artist Valerio Adami appropriates a pop art style of arranged chaos. From his first pop artworks, this artist has been appreciated in Parisian art circles. His colourful work has a stylized flatness with firm contours. His paintings consists of surreal expressions that invite the viewer to reconstruct the process of forming the image. Initially he painted living rooms and bathrooms, which later evolved into politics, history, literature and religion. The artist takes the viewer on a philosophical dream journey in which he responds to emotions, desires and the rediscovery of beauty and creativity. His pop art brings a quip, hip and colourful but at the same time a chaotic disorder between fantasy and reality. Simultaneously his work offers an inner serenity.
