Valerio Adami Paintings

Italian painter/printmaker Valerio Adami (b.1935) developed an interest in art as a child and by the age of 16 was accepted into the Accademia di Brera in Milan. In 1959 he held his first solo exhibit in Milan and has since had numerous exhibitions around the world. Adami's figurative paintings with large areas of flat color separated by bold black strokes have both Pop Art and Cloisonnism influences. The Swedish poet Lasse Söderberg described the artist perfectly when he wrote, "Adami is the maestro of the unadulterated line."
