A false scientific prediction seduces me from the atomic age. Behind a smile that advertises the American dream discover the echo of the cold war, a unreal dream under the theme of "The future that never arrived", or better "The future that never existed". That is my language, a beautiful dream in technicolor within an illusion of security.

Biography

  • Adamo Dimitriadis (Madrid, 1967)

    Seduces him painting since childhood, but it would be the visit to an exhibition of René Magritte, already in their twenties, which determine their vocation. had just completed his studies in design. those were some beginnings near the lowbrow or pop surrealism. Visits to the Prado Museum with his father, a Greek engineer, Yes and another were a weekend also. Then discover the taste for figurative and research of color in artists such as José de Ribera, Diego Velázquez, Francisco de Goya and the Bosco. Then came his interest by different styles pictorial: pre-raphaelites, symbolism, surrealism, constructivism, Futurism, art pop or the precisionism.

    Starting from 2014 evolves towards a realism scientific. Science and morality are two inseparable concepts in his work. Progress examined since the magnifying glass on the ethics. That future perfect always overshadowed by the threat, scientific advancements diverted to purposes other than a human benefit. From here you drink its genesis, inspired by the future that never arrived and fascination with science in the decades of the fifties and sixties, an attractive universe of truncated perspectives that mixed with personal elegance in a conceptual palette which stand out the classic sci-fi , brutalist architecture and industrial photography, as paradigms of modernity.

    Adamo Dimitriadis recreates the dark side of scientific progress with the unrealistic perception of a dream in Technicolor. His paintings radiate happiness tense, as if go from joy to disaster is a matter of time. Narrate a disenchantment sweet in a future last, a message that sprayed with irony to give input to its denounces of the wrong use of the progress scientific, that so many examples has moved to the present.

    "Them children already not want to be astronauts and scientific, but footballers", summarizes in an evocation. reminds of that his more early age it architecture industrial and the illustrations of petrochemical that browsing in them books of engineering of his father. The atom, a constant in his work symbol, you woke up in those years a still unresolved curiosity, a result perhaps of the quintessence of the concept: its mysterious indefinition.

    Madrid painter combines in his canvases love and electrons, children and nuclear power plants, Atomic toys, computers of the dimensions of a room, space cameras, industrial landscapes and much science, also much science fiction. A soundtrack conducted by the exotic Outer Space of the fifties and sixties and early 1980s industrial music.
