the tin man

Building his character through a journey of life experiences, the little tin man takes on a life of his own. With a unique narrative in settings of Adam’s own creation, the tin man paintings display an intriguing insight into the subconscious.

This collection is often thought to be inspired by Nolan’s Kelly series, but this is far from the case. Rather than drawing on a famous story of an icon, the tin man was purposely chosen as a generic figure to build an original story around. The tin man will always rust but remain impervious to what life throws his way.
