Dublin born and adopted son of Cork City, John Adams is a full time professional artist, and active campaigner for the arts.His painting style veers from representational in a realistic way, to expressionistic, brushstrokes slashing and moving with the flow of the composition, creating a sense of the waves or landscape coming alive. It is within the imagination, and subconscious mind where some of the strongest paintings come from.
In 2010 John studied landscape painting, and painting the figure at the Florence Academy of Art, skills are something he believes are the rock that all good art is built.
