Authenticism is a value we pride ourselves on at GLIMMA, particularly in this new era of purpose. Being who you say you are (a point I would encourage my match-making clients to fulfil) and being a better brand is essential to build a rapport, trust and enduring value-based relationships.

We are an international located team, adept, agile and able to bring a recipe of rich and robust cultural perspectives to every project. No day is the same. We will start the day catching up on a call with the team in Bangkok delivering a workplace project and then switch to a USA pitch in the afternoon.

I’m a third culture kid, based in London, from Scotland but I was born and raised in Hong Kong, Indonesia and Singapore, so I enjoy the time-zoning and opportunity to work around the world, with no borders.

I get to meet people and build relationships that matter. We might not work together today, but the authentic rapport we’ve struck means we will always remember each other tomorrow.

I’m a creative at heart, the arts are a big part of life and I love painting, drawing and listening to music from around the world.

Life as a fine artist

Adam Pinsley was born in New York City in 1970. With a preternatural gift for colors and textures, he began drawing, and designing comic strips and murals at age 5. Influenced by his mother, a gallery artist herself, he became a fixture at the Leo Castelli Gallery and Sydney Janis Gallery in New York City as a young child. He was always enamored and transfixed by the harmonization of mediums that he observed in these gallery works. A harmonization that gives an animated vibrancy to the art he creates today.

Inspired by some of his favorite artists Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Patrick Nagel, his pop surreal vision, which balances detail, ambiguity, figurativeness, and abstraction, quickly earns art collectors worldwide’s respect. The use of black and white outlines to offset bold but strategically placed strokes of bright-unexpected colors captures and adds to the energy and movement of his paintings.

Adam celebrates contemporary experience and revels in popular imagery, as reflected in his vibrant and exuberant images for celebrities, entertainers, professional athletes, private collectors, and corporations worldwide.

Abstract Expressionist painters explore new ways of creating art, reinvigorating and reinventing the medium. They change the nature of painting with their large, abstract canvases, energetic and gestural lines, and new artistic processes. Inspired by perhaps the most well-known Abstract Expressionist artist Jackson Pollock, Pinsley moved away from his comfort zone as a Pop Artist and put his own spin on Abstract Expressionism by tapping into the world of commercial aviation.

Working in his private studio, The Drip Factory, in the shadow of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, he began experimenting with nontraditional materials, such as commercial-grade aviation aluminum, paint and scrap metal as brushes. These are the very same materials used by major airlines across the world. And that is how Jet Drip Art was born.

Adam has also enjoyed an awesome 40-year playing and 12-year coaching lacrosse background that fuels his passion for helping student-athletes reach their full potential on and off the field team.

30 years later, he still competes at the masters level on the national tournament circuit and internationally for the Team Israel Masters. Adam volunteers his time coaching for his local high school team when not playing.
