In the 1950s Adami lived in Paris where he was inspired by Roberto Matta and Wifredo Lam. From 1964, he developed a distinctive style in which large flat areas are surrounded by heavy black outlines. In the 1970s, he focused his creativity on politics, when he combined motifs from European history, philosophy, mythology and literature.
