Artist Biography - Arthur Neal

Arthur Neal was born in 1951, and studied at Camberwell School of Art under Euan Uglow. The son of an under-secretary to the Queen, Neal grew up living in Kensington Palace. Neal later taught at Metropole, Folkstone and Maidstone Colleges of Art.
Arthur Neal works largely in impasto – his work defined by a rich,
sometimes lugubrious, colour palette, coupled with a heavi
...ly textural
treatment of oil paint. Viewing his work demands a period of
contemplation to fully appreciate the depth and complexity of the
paintings. There is a process of discovery, a sense of evolution
reflecting the laborious artistic process that Arthur Neal takes on
creating a work of art where the initial abstraction gives way to a
figurative composition.
He is a member of the New English Art Club (NEAC) and has illustrated
and published two books on the poetry of Edward Thomas. Neal has
exhibited in numerous solo and group shows including with the Royal
Academy (for 16 years including 2015 where his work was selected for
merit by author Sebastian Faulks); The New English Arts Club, London;
Cadogan Contemporary, London; Merriscourt gallery, Oxford; Discerning
Eye, Mall Galleries, London; Lynne Strover Gallery, Cambridge and the
Alton Gallery London. Scholarships, Awards and Prizes Hunting/Observer
