When someone’s work looks like the legs of David Hockney’s painting trousers, or the vomit of someone who’s just nailed a pack of Skittles, you know it’s gonna be the kind of thing we want on our site. Like the spectacular Minna Gilligan or Jordy van Den Nieuwendijk, artist Adam Sultan’s weapon of choice is COLOUR.
His large canvases are covered in the most elegant, arresting type of scribble you can get. With the palette of Hockney’s summer paintings (not just his trousers) and the erratic energy of Jackson Pollock, these exciting works are enough to catapult Adam into our top five artists list. While you’re here, check out Adam’s curious fictional portraits and this series of gouache paintings he made on thank you cards – you won’t be disappointed.
