Adam Cvijanovic


2017 | Oil on linen

Named for the wondrously dramatic storm clouds depicted in this monumental painting, Thunderheads, by American artist Adam Cvijanovic, portrays his perception of Atlanta’s panoramic skyline as seen from an aircraft. The work also draws upon Cvijanovic’s memory of soaring over an illuminated sports field through an amethyst haze. Renowned for his large-scale, Renaissance-inspired murals that often span more than 20 feet in length, Cvijanovic’s work combines photorealism with a sense of subjectivity.
