A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words
Illustration accompanies the written word and gives it form and color. Conceptual illustration transcends the limits of the written word. At the heart of every good presentation is a compelling image. In today's visual culture, creative communication becomes an essential part of branding and operating a successful business. Conceptual illustration adds value to brand equity. Illustrations visualize problems and present visual solutions. Adam Niklewicz specializes in effective visualization. His direct, concept-driven illustrations communicate complex issues and offer a revealing insight into the mechanisms that underlay them. The visual metaphors of his illustrations possess the intellectual and aesthetic surprise that has a lasting effect on the mind and emotions of the beholder.

The artist’s studio, where his concepts take shape and where he paints his illustrations, is a distillery of sorts and the process of elimination stands for Niklewicz's creative method. As a result, multifaceted notions and problems attain clarity. The illustrator believes that less is more and both his graphic style and his approach to problem solving attest to it. Niklewicz’s illustrations posses ideas that cut through the superfluous and reach the essential.

Although deceptively spare, his visual vocabulary is capacious enough to contain and to cover most of the emotions, states, concepts, facts and phenomena that are inherent in our human condition. This attribute makes for the wide appeal of Niklewicz's images and explains why an array of magazines, newspapers, advertising agencies, corporations, new media ventures, designers, publishing houses, illustration annuals and individual collectors seek his art.

Niklewicz’s editorial illustrations respond to contemporary global events with journalistic immediacy. At the same time, these illustrations recognize the constant within the changeable. Creating illustrations for annual reports - a substantial portion of his illustrative output - affords the illustrator with comparable opportunities. Illustrating annual reports adds up to commenting upon the most emblematic notions that motivate and propel humans to act and to be resourceful. Whether it is a software company, a law firm, a bank, or a hospital, they all share in the same universal effort of satisfying the needs and desires of the human heart. The illustrator is in tune with the humanity of his clients. Niklewicz’s illustrations are ultimately about love, freedom, loyalty, solidarity and faith.
