Valerio ADAMI


Valerio Adami is an Italian painter born in Bologna on 17 March 1935.

He is known for his famous flat tints of acidic colours and his shapes surrounded by a black outline, reminiscent of the clear line of comics but also of stained glass windows in churches.

In 1955 he met Wifredo Lam and Roberto Matta on his first trip to Paris.

In the 1970s, Adami established himself as one of the leading representatives of the New Figuration. He developed a psychological pictorial style characterised by elaborate drawings, which the colour has the function of diverting, modifying or amplifying. His works are characterised by the saturation of the coloured surfaces where no white remains, no trace of doubt or incompleteness.

He moved to Paris in 1970, and was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, and then throughout the world.

A retrospective exhibition was devoted to him at the Centre Pompidou in 1985.

From 1970 to 1994, he exhibited at the Maeght Gallery in Paris.
