Francesco D’Adamo is an Italian painter, born in 1979, in Siena and currently living and working in Bologna, Italy. He contemplates the synthesis of music and art and in doing so, creates expressive canvases that are bold and often very tactile in their painterly approach.
Art History Inspiration
As a child, D’Adamo showed a keen interest for painting and drawing and so took private lessons for a number of years. It was only in 2010 that he returned to art, making it his all-consuming focus. D’Adamo’s work draws on the 20th Century French and Italian ‘Informale’ movements. At times he takes inspiration from Lyrical Abstraction and Tachisme and the works of Alberto Burri and the American Expressionist painter Willem de Kooning.
