Pietro Adamo was born Toronto, Canada. After Graduating from university of Toronto and Sheridan College, Adamo accepted a teaching position in the visual arts department at Chaminade College School in Toronto. He taught there for almost two decades while gaining acclaim as an artist, painting numerous private and public commissions.
Adamo draws inspiration for his work from art history, monumental art and architecture and travel-including trips to his ancestral Italy. This blend of influences has combined to create his distinct visual languages. With textured surfaces, rough contours and sophisticated colors, Adamo’s painting abandon conventional geometric forms.
Adamo currently resides in Ontario, Canada.
