Adam Handler

Adam Handler (b. 1986, NYC) reforms art's staid conventions of beauty by returning to supposed primal or elementary beginnings, by adopting a child-like style, questioning our conceptions of and presumptions about our surrounding reality.
As Paul Lee noticed: "Children also have artistic ability, and there is a wisdom in their having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us."

Adam Handler attempts to present ostensibly unmediated expressions of creativity by eschewing traditional painting technique. His strong colours into his deceptively casual brushstroke, the humorist notes from the daily life and the distortions of scale and form makes people and flowers seem more real than the real ones.
Handler's sophisticated childhood creative artistic expression engages the viewer on the artwork's own terms.
Adam Handler studied Life Drawing in Italy and went on to graduate from Purchase College in NY with a major in Art History.
