Adam Carnegie is a well known Fine Art Illustrator, Designer and Painter. In 2016 one of his illustrations won an International Bronze Illustration award. He is best known for his whimsical compositions. He is passionate about the environment and lives in the heart of a wetland nature reserve, Zeekoevlei, near Cape Town.
Adam is a story teller. All his pictures are stories with playful love at their core. Cape Town and surrounds is a treasure trove of natural beauty. But finding the treasure in every moment inspires him. His images sometimes capture deep unsaid 'issues' that underly South Africa and its tensions and the crazy subtle things that 'get in the way' of us being united.
Adam is passionate about illustrated children's books and fantasy. Adam says: "Life is full of silver linings" - "Life's real treasures are fleeting - I catch them." - "Pictures speak a thousand words." - "When we let go our fears we can love deeply."
Living in Greece brought him to the heart of meaningful culture. And too the resonance of Byzantine Religious Icons. "South Africans need to believe and too treasure all the beauty and diversity that surrounds us."
