A full range of original prints by Adam Bridgland is available from HemingwayArt. Described as 'your favourite leisure time artist', Adam embraces the everyday object finding inspiration from colouring book images, travel guidebooks, and scout camping paraphernalia. Kitsch and humorous yet equally poignant, Adam's work rejoices in the mundane and is an investigation of the notion that holiday-making is just another ordinary everyday activity and that the holiday is essentially a fantasy that rarely lives up to our expectations.
The British Museum, the V&A, UBS, Boeing Asia and Debbie Harry are just some of the collectors of Adam's work. In July 2009 Adam was awarded his first major public art commission by Futures Community College in Southend and Commissions East. He recently unveiled his latest sculptural commission for SmartLIFE in Cambridge.
