Adam Colangelo was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1983. Since his first experimentations with copper in his grandfather’s workshop, Colangelo
has found promise in this extremely versatile material. Colangelo’s large-scale compositions speak to his understanding of copper and his interests in challenging the way we view and interpret two-dimensional art. His
process is methodical, laborious, and time-consuming. By employing diverse techniques, Colangelo presents an array of patinas and finishes so rich in detail, each small segment of his compositions offers its own earthy abstraction.
Colangelo has exhibited works in Toronto, Whistler, New York, Chicago, Palm Beach, and Tokyo. His work has been purchased for private and corporate collections in the United States and Canada. He now lives and works out of Toronto, Ontario.
