It all started with a creative urge, a soul burning deep with-in, where darkness turned to light and love mastered all. Infinite in desire, limitless in ideas and creativity layered in love for remembrance of the divine and Heaven within. Adam Amos works cross-media and the divide between digital, installation & contemporary Christian modern art, experiential and immersive Cy(I)man(E)tic Prophetic Transmedia Storytelling. Expanding story-worlds across multimedia platforms and formats, unleashing heaven on earth inspired by the greatest Artist of them all.
Adam’s debut solo show, “Let there be light” ignites a three-part trilogy collection; “The Age of the Father”, “The Son” and “The Holy Spirit”, awakening the “Creation” Series which presents an alternative perspective of God’s seven-day creation cycle and the story of Creation. An exploration of love, light, and “The Self”, it portrays “The Genesis” creation cycle where God speaks light and life into the cosmos. The show addresses the transition from expressionism into Contemporary Christian Post Internet 3D Functional Installation Art and Cy(I)man(E)tic Prophetic Transmedia Storytelling, exploring multiple cross-media techniques, styles & mediums including collage, wet-on-wet, holography, lights, sculpture, and photography.
His subsequent show, “The Age of the Son” is series which dives into the life of “The Son of God” and promises to attract a following of parallel minds and disciples by stirring at emotions and presenting Christ like never seen before.
