About Adam

Adam Carnegie

I've been an illustrator for the past 30 years, I love telling stories through my art.

I want my images to be "icons", precious keepsakes, that feel both old and yet somehow remain vividly fresh in the now.

The best was when I used to hand deliver artworks to clients and to witness the joy as their commission was suddenly brought to life.

For a time I lived in Greece and illustrated for a popular children's Magazine and a child wrote: "I love my magazines so much that I sleep with them under my pillow at night." I knew I was doing something right.

I love touching on the small things that make life fantastic, difficult, disappointing, humorous, vivid and at times profound and confusing.

Living in cape town is constantly inspiring.
Watching the unfolding of a new free Nation is complicated and at times alarming, stuffy and polarised.
I try to capture this "stuff" - sometimes through absurd combinations and stupid twists. (It's not that I wish to undermine the heartfelt struggle, pain, anguish that individuals feel - but rather to play with the irony.)

I like the naive things that underpin the reality we live in.
And I am delighted by folk art. Folk art captures powerful things that are in a way common place - normally by people who do not have an 'education in art' - and yet they see and capture brilliant details.
I want my images to be strong and captivating, to talk to the viewer - and to offer various perspectives.
But sometimes I just want to paint something that is just a ship or a whale breaching.
Just a passing scene - captured - just because it was...

And sometimes I like to go backwards in time to capture things that are romantic and feel like they should re-emerge to remind us that they were graceful and beautiful in their own way.

I enjoy taking commissions because ultimately I want my images to be intrinsically special. To constantly speak and to invite a warmth and sense of ongoing vitality.

I like to think my art wears it's heart on it's sleeve.
