Artworks - Adam Green
Adam Green was born in England in 1973. After completing his BA Hons in Fine Art Painting from Kingston University he spent some time travelling. This included an extended stay in Central America and a year in Africa. Since returning Adam has exhibited regularly in the South East of England as well as working on pieces for commission including a portrait for the actor, Rik Mayal.
Adam Greenís 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.
Adamís 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.
His paintings have been shown at the Royal Academy and he has exhibited regularly in London and the South East.
