ADAMI Valerio

Valerio Adami, born 1935 in Bologna, is a painter and the most famous Italian representative of Pop Art. In France, his adopted country, he is part of the movement “Figuration Narrative.”

Educated at the Accademia di Brera in Milan, he has since worked in New York, Monaco, London and Paris.

In 1945, at the age of ten, he began to study painting under the instruction of Felice Carena. He was accepted into the Brera Academy (Accademia di Brera) in 1951, and there studied as a draughtsman until 1954 in the studio of Achille Funi. In 1955 he went to Paris, where he met and was influenced by Roberto Matta and Wifredo Lam. His first solo exhibition came in 1959 in Milan.

In his early career, Adami's works were expressionistic, but by the time of his second exhibition in 1964 at Kassel, he had developed a style of painting reminiscent of French cloisonnism, featuring regions of flat color bordered by black lines. Unlike Gauguin, however, Adami's subjects were highly stylized and often presented in fragments, as seen in Telescoping Rooms (1965).

1965 he works were exposed in the exhibition “la figuration narrative” in Paris which was the beginning of that art movement.

In the 1970s, Adami began to address politics in his art, and incorporated subject matter such as modern European history, literature, philosophy, and mythology. In 1971, he and his brother Gioncarlo created the film Vacances dans le désert.

In 1974 he moved to Bavaria and illustrated a Helmut Heissenbuttel poem, Occasional Poem No. 27. Ten Lessons on the Reich with ten original lithographs {Gallerie Maeght}. In 1975, the philosopher Jacques Derrida devoted a long essay, "+R: Into the Bargain", to Adami's work, using an exhibition of Adami's drawings as a pretext to discuss the function of "the letter and the proper name in painting", with reference to "narration, technical reproduction, ideology, the phoneme, the biographeme, and politics". In 1984 he stopped dating his artworks. His works are shown in numerous art galleries all over the world.

He has had several major retrospectives, starting 1970 with the museum of modern art of Paris, followed by Valencia, Tokio, Tel Aviv, Siena, Bochum, Buenos Aires, Florenz, Athen, Locarno, Miami, Ravenna, Turin, Mantua, Perpignan, Wien , Boca Raton Museum of Art and last but not least recently the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Since 2013 Adami hast created several silk-screen-prints together with L’Estampe, which a part of the collection in our showroom in Strasbourg
