Born 1964 (Canada) lives and works in Montreal
Education: Dawson College 1984

Adamo Macri is a Canadian artist who works in photography, video, painting, drawing and sculpture. Distinctive themes interweave in his work such as the forbidden, identity, contamination, the staging of nature, documenting sculpture based upon perceiving it as occurrence and not static presence. Ultimately the final result must represent the most important aspect of his art, the resonating image.
