His artworks depict animals, samurais, pirates and gypsies, which are metaphors for his own feelings and instincts of men. The common themes of his works include the violence of nature and the reflection of opposites, such as life and death, sex and violence, experience and inexperience. The art of Adam Bricusse invites the viewers to take a better look and see what is beyond the cracked layers of paint. His famous butterfly series are now almost exclusively produced as commissioned work, in addition to snake scales and fish eyes.

Adam Bricusse has exhibited locally and internationally. His work is represented in numerous collections.
