Adam Lupton


I've recently came across the artwork of Canadian artist Adam Lupton (thank you, Tumblr!). His oil paintings splintered and shattered layers of reality and blurred the lines of time and space. I see his works as a very peculiar concept of portraiture, like a parallel stream of conscience where realism clashes with a vague sense of dissociation and emotional depth. Almost like a broken mirror reflection seen through the cracks. Lupton was born in Vancouver, graduated from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2010 and is currently completing his Master of Fine Arts at the New York Academy of Art.

  1. Thanks for sharing Adam's work with us. He is extremely talented. I love the way he has sort of taken the limitations of the use of paintings as records (as they previously were used before being replaced by the camera) and has conveyed movement and time in a singular frame.

  3. Adoro adooooro o último! Já tinha visto algumas coisas dele e apeteceu-me imenso fazer algo inspirado em fotografia mas não ficou nem um pedacinho perto. os trabalhos dele tem dimensões particulares, mas acho que requer alguma atenção para se aproveitar bem a obra!

  4. Adoro! Há uma sensação de movimento que permite criar um filme na cabeça sobre o quadro e isso é espectacular :) Não conhecia

  5. Ooh these are crazy! I like the concept at it must have been technically hard to pull off too.

  6. This art is so rad! Reminds me of a NZ artist called Henrietta. Hers are more distorted photographs. While these are more streams of thought/moment which I find so fascinating!

  9. Pretty cool, like a new way of painting. Reminds me of cubism somehow.

  11. His work is stunning! I like that you can feel the angst and confusion right from the start. As I saw more and more of his pieces, that sort of feeling definitely did sit over me, which is amazing. I can't even begin to imagine how he started to paint that splintered type of reality- this is some great talent. Isn't tumblr just the best to find new artists :)
