JJ Adams might not – as yet, anyway – be a name that you’re overly familiar with. But that’s all about to change, rest assured, as one of the most prodigiously talented contemporary fine art practitioners of his generation is set to explode on the genre scene. And if his very latest visual episode is anything to go by; in a pretty massive way. ‘Who Wants to Live Forever’ is, as keenly observed, an illustratively triumphant homage to one of the greatest music showmen to have ever lived; the late, great Freddie Mercury of course; fastidiously captured in the graphically expansive parameters of JJ Adam’s new autumn 2017 pictorial reveal seen here for the first time.
But who is JJ Adams? The self-proclaimed rebellious son of a Baptist preacher was brought up in Cape Town, South Africa after his family moved him there from Plymouth in the early 80s. a Graphic Design degree and tattoo parlour apprenticeship later, Adams returned to the UK in the mid-90s; and the rest is relative history. As this stunning hand-signed giclee limited edition will be once the 95 copies leave the shelves this season. So give us a shout right now to reserve yours!
