Adamov was born and raised in Taganrog on the Azov Sea. Marine element, in all its forms, entered his life in early childhood. The artist feels sea deeply and subtly. The excitement and calm, tides and quiet moonlit nights, sunny and cloudy days – all imprinted in the paintings of the artist.

The artist is gaining momentum, as if liberated, the movement of his brush attain freedom, smear becomes decisive and accurate and works acquire a keen sense of reality.

The excitement and thrill of beauty combined with fear and trembling before its power leave no one indifferent.
Adamov is the artist with a fine sense of nature, variability and diversity of its states, and knows how to convey it on canvas: clear summer day and twilight, lull before the storm, freshness after the rain and the heat of the setting sun, the transparency of an autumn forest and whitish morning fogs.
