Adam Handler is a Kawaii Faux Naïf artist from New York, and brings 14 brand new paintings to this exhibition. And for the first time, he brings his three iconic topics together: UFO (Abductions), little ghost and the sweet Asian girls, as to creating a parallel universe in his own way.
Adam Handler discovered his artistic spark as a child in his grandparents’ New York framing factory. Surrounded with paintings by the likes of Chagall, de Kooning, Basquiat and Haring, he has developed his own style and language through long-term artistic creation. Adam focused his own creative voice by studying life drawing in Italy and earning a BA in art history, aiming to avoid the strictures of fine art education and retain the sensibility of “an outsider, but an informed outsider.”
Employing candy-colored acrylics and the childlike scrawl of oil stick, often using oil painting sticks, pencils and markers for creation, he strives to channel the raw, confident energy of innocence and makes the whole artwork be filled with rich details. he confronts his own trepidation about the transience of life by enveloping it in joyful exuberance, ultimately seeking to catalyze an emotional reaction in the viewer.
