Adam Cohen’s glorious abstract painting is a kaleidoscope of bright colours—a heady mix of orange, pinks, purples, chocolate brown, indigo, turquoise blue, and yellow highlighted by bright white and black. The American artist is known for his provocative use of colour, rich texture and gestural form. The Ancient Greeks called the paradise reserved for heroes immortalized by the gods.—the Elysian Fields.
“Imagery as rich as Cohen’s cannot be planned in advance. It must develop organically from a spontaneous process. “ Carter Ratcliff, art critic
He studied at Philadelphia’s Tyler School of Art and lived and painted in Rome for a year. After many successful years as an illustrator, he returned to his first love--painting. Adam Cohen lives and paints in the Catskills, NY. Cohen has exhibited extensively in the US, Europe, Asia and most recently in Amsterdam and Venice.
