Adam Lexar is an artist based in Sweden, who whips up whimsical visions of absurdity with bold strokes of brightly coloured oil paint.
Drawing references from amateur photography, Adam is attracted to funny and bizarre images; strange, forgotten pictures found sodden and trampled in the internet’s gutter, which in their mystery hint towards just how weird of a world this little planet actually is.
Golden statue dicks, sword fights in the forest, a dog dominatrix – all manner of oddness collides in Adam’s paintings, eliciting a dreamlike expression of fun, more than anything else.
Of his work, Adam says, “In my search, I find many similarities between different cultures – in what we find funny, what we choose to photograph and why. If anything that is what I want to create in my paintings, a comedy expression we can all relate to.”
