Pietro Adamo was born in Toronto, Canada in 1955. He enrolled in the Fine Art and Art History Program at the University of Toronto and Sheridan College. The paintings of Adamo are a celebration of the artist’s admiration for the “unpredictable and inexhaustible record of life.” He abandons the conventional renderings of geometric forms through his textured surfaces and rough contours.
Adamo uses modeling pastes and/or various gel mediums combined with silica sand to create the unique texture qualities within his pieces.
Adamo draws influence from artists of all periods and from the world around him. Travel is an important source of inspiration, especially trips to Italy, his ancestral homeland. Pietro’s work can be found in galleries throughout Canada, Europe, and the USA.
