Adam O’Day is a painter based in Abington, MA. O’Day received a BFA in Illustration/Design from The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University and has exhibited his work in Boston, New York City, Atlanta, London, and New London, CT. 

In the past, O’Day has approached representational paintings with a more dreamlike feel. In this series, the color palettes seem to be more lifelike and inspired by observation, rather than memory. The reason for this, is the artist returning to the world after 2 years in the studio, painting interiors, still lifes, and sinks. This year, Adam has ventured out to paint landscapes and cityscapes, something he hasn’t done for a few years. The main mission of this collection is to show the viewer the relationship between natural scenes and urban settings. O’Day aims to show how mark-making and color can create a bridge between the two subjects.
