About Adam

When Adam Colangelo first experimented with scraps of copper during his formative years, he had no way of knowing that the medium would deeply impact his life. In the years since, Colangelo has found promise in this extremely versatile medium.

Colangelo’s large-scale compositions speak to his understanding of copper and his desire to reveal its beauty. In treating the copper with heat and chemicals, he can unearth an array of patinas and finishes. Colangelo uses his keen aesthetic sense to create geometric puzzles of copper that are so rich in detail, each small segment offers its own earthy abstraction.

Colangelo has exhibited works in Toronto, Hamilton, New York, Chicago, Palm Beach, and Tokyo. His work has been purchased for private and corporate collections in the United States and Canada as well as the Archives of Ontario collection.

"Adam’s art reflects a living, breathing landscape, both internal and external"

"The way the colors are brought to life is like nothing I've seen before! Every piece is thoughtfully laid out really making the whole thing pop out at you. I will definitely be investing in one of these remarkable pieces."

"You need to see this work in person. I recently viewed Adam Colangelo's copper art in Toronto. The colouring, texture and gritty feel can only be experienced in person. Definitely one of my favourite artists."

"I love the beauty that you've brought out of the copper. I'm a quilter so this evokes memories of quilts past. Who knew that copper could be so variable? Keep up the good works. I'd love to come to a showing if you come to Minneapolis sometime."
