Michael Adamson is a Canadian artist and Toronto-born graduate of the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Vancouver. He also trained at Ryerson University and the esteemed Gesamkunst Hochschule in Germany. Adamson's work sits between conceptualism and expressionism leaving it pleasantly challenging to categorise.

Adamson’s vibrant and tactile works are littered with art historical references, which combined with the artist’s humour makes every viewing of his work a different experience. He is internationally recognised and exhibits around the world, having successfully shown in London, Tokyo, New York and Canada.

Adamson’s work has been acquired for many public and corporate collections including, Royal Bank of Canada, Toronto Metro Convention Centre and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. Thompson’s Galleries met Michael Adamson in Canada at the Toronto Art Fair and have had a blossoming partnership ever since.
