Art by Neil Leinwhol


neilNeil’s art is about personal mythology. The unreliable nature of memory. In 1966, he left a Fine Arts Scholarship at The School Of Visual Arts and enlisted in the Army to be a photographer. Five months later he found himself in Viet Nam. Since 1970, Neil’s worked in advertising, as a writer, art director, and Creative Director. He now paints full time.

He works with no preconceived ideas, and begins by cloning images and shapes he randomly chooses on to a digital canvas . (He says random, but in reality they are subconscious choices and meaningful. The layered images inform decisions and set a final path. Neil’s been told he’s doing self-portraits. You can find more of his work on his website, Facebook, or Twitter.
