Biography


     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.  After graduation he took a position teaching art at Chaminade College School in Toronto.While there he helped establish a strong visual arts department, one which saw many of his students go on to become prominent architects, designers, illustrators and fine artists.  During his two decades of teaching, Adamo continued to paint and executed several private and public commissions of his work.   

      The paintings of Adamo are a celebration of the artists` 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 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.  During these extended stays, Adamo is able to explore monumental art and architecture as well as the small details of the rural landscape.
     
    Adamo`s career as an artist has been a journey of continuous exploration and growth.  His paper, wood and canvas have a constant audience.  He has also released a highly successful series of hand pulled prints and posters, as well as bas-relief sculptures.  Today his works can be found in galleries and collections worldwide.
