Neil Masterman. A Diversity of Styles United by Love of Color

Self-taught UK artist Neil Masterman first started painting professionally in the 1990s and has gone from strength to strength. He experienced a particular thrill on seeing one of his paintings selected for the poster advertising the 2008 New York exhibition in which he participated.

Neil MastermanMasterman paints in an astonishing variety of styles and subjects, from post-impressionism and cubism to the abstract. Masterman also paints in a variety of mediums, from acrylic to oils and watercolors to Chinese pen, although acrylic is currently his preferred medium. His extensive portfolio of work rarely repeats itself, yet is always recognizable as distinctive to the artist. He influences are various, but his first inspiration was Vincent van Gogh, the impact of which can still be seen in some of his work.
Masterman’s diverse pieces are united by the bold, bright colors of his palette. He uses color intentionally, to capture the viewer’s attention and convey emotion, texture and movement. When he begins a piece, he knows what he’s going to do and what he wants to say. With a mastery of color and design, Masterman jolts the viewer out of complacency and encourages them to take a closer look.

About the Exhibition

In Evolving Abstraction, these artists reflect the beauty and complexity of the world they see through taking a step back and portraying them through the lens of artistic vision rather than with representational accuracy. Often experimental, the works are innovative in their quest to find the best tools and techniques to convey the idea that exists in the artist’s mind and share it with an audience hungry for a fresh perspective on what they see every day.
