A colourful journey through Newfoundland and Labrador as seen through the distinctive, whimsical style of internationally renowned artist Adam Young.

Highlighting the last ten years of Adam Young’s artistic work, this book features over 100 paintings and sketches based on the artist’s representation and vision of Newfoundland and Labrador. Inspiration for Young’s work comes from the stark beauty of the landscape and architecture and the warmth of the people who live here. His mediums of choice are acrylics and inks, and the work focuses on light, repetition, movement, and colour. The fishing stage and saltbox house are common themes in Young’s paintings, and these objects stand in as characters. The colourful little shacks embody a playful feeling of curiosity and wonder as they balance on the rocky and sometimes harsh coastline of the North Atlantic.
