Adriano is a painter living and working in Easton.
In early September he taught a plein air landscape painting workshop along the Lehigh Canal and Delaware River as a lead-in to the Riverside Festival of the Arts.
In July he had a solo exhibition of recent work called ‘Equilibria’ at Easton’s Brick and Mortar Gallery. He teaches drawing, painting, and figure drawing at the Baum School of Art in Allentown as well as workshops several times a year.
Adriano approaches studio work as a spiritual practice, painting landscapes from both memory and imagination with a focus on the sky and clouds as symbols of impermanence. He is most inspired by paying attention to the present moment and the evolution of memory.
