Adrian Lazzaro’s character-based artworks feature the likes of wrestlers, zombies, teddy bears and lovers. The heavily rendered works are executed in a saturated comic strip colour range, creating a heightened emotional, dramatic and carnivalesque atmosphere. The imagery blends sinister interpretations with a quirky sense of humour, often projecting a wry outlook. Public collections include City of Moreland and Wangaratta Art Gallery. His work is also held in national and international private and corporate collections.
