Painter and musician, Francesco D’Adamo was born in Siena in 1979.
In 2006 he moved to Bologna, where painting came back as a constant and fundamental presence in his life and over time gradually became his main activity. His painting research is rooted in the Italian postwar art and American abstract expressionism, with particular emphasis to a continuous dialogue between visual and musical language. The sign and its rhythm, layered surfaces, a strong palette and the use of different techniques, they all flow together to create a lyrical and yet deeply concrete image.
He is also a member of the band Nero di Marte Season of Mist records) with several publishings, shows in Italy and tours in the United States/Canada (2013) and Europe (2016). In addition he is involved in the experimental band Nono Cerchio and various solo works during the past years.
Outside painting and music, he has been working as educator with psychiatric patients until 2015.
