Childlike simplicity, quirky, colorful, primitive––these are just a few words to describe the extraordinary talent of New York-born painter Adam Handler. His recognizable characters such as bats, ghosts, and wide-eyed girls embody innocence and adolescent energy that the very best of artists will tell you is close to impossible to render with fresh authenticity. Using acrylic paint, oil stick, pencil, and markers, Handler’s child-like and passionate drawing technique produces distinctive outlined characters which almost appear flat, with little to no depth of field. Handler studied Life Drawing in Italy and later graduated from Purchase College with a degree in Art History. Handler’s work has been exhibited internationally, namely throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
