Please find below a sample of paintings created by Adelaide Damoah, organised by series.
On the 1st of October, Adelaide had a showing of ten works on behalf of the charity the National Centre for Domestic Violence. Held in London's Soho, the evening showing marked the beginning of Domestic Violence Awareness Month to highlight the work of the charity.
Supermodels is a collection of eighteen striking paintings featuring powerful images which distort some well known international supermodels and celebrity icons.
These works completed between 2006 and 2008 by Adelaide Damoah represent an intense period of her career when she was personally affected by the death of Brazilian model Anna Carolina Reston in 2006.
The works were exhibited in 2008 at Nolias gallery in Southwark, London.
Black Lipstick is a collection of erotic portraits inspired by an exlover. During this period, the artist was actively exploring the more dominant side of her personality, expressed in this series of work of her personal life.
Some of the pieces were deemed too sexually explicit to be shown for more than one night at a prominent London gallery.
The Black Brits exhibition took place in February 2006 in popular menswear designer Charlie Allen's boutique. Through a series of oil paintings of British icons, Adelaide Damoah sought to ask the British public to think about the nature of iconography by switching the skin colour of icons such as David Beckham and Kate Moss.
Inspired by Mexican artist Frida Khalo, Adelaide Damoah started out creating powerful abstract emotion filled pieces which reflected the mood that she was in and what she was going through emotionally. Often, the pieces produced came from a place of physical and emotional pain. She says, "Sometimes I sit and draw or paint whatever comes to mind and that is when the most strange pieces are produced...". This is something that Adelaide Damoah does on a regular basis, so this gallery will be updated frequently.
