Hi World!

I'M Carlos neville

a performance/visual artist living and working in New Orleans.

 My profile paintings hide my story as a 13 yr. old runaway and dropout. My graffiti career stopped ten minutes after I first picked up a spray can learning under a bridge. I was taken to juvenile and ended up in a school with an art program. That cop and the court saved my life.

I've had the great pleasure of my art taking me around the world. From studying classical art in Italy to receiving a first of its kind scholarship from The School of Visual Arts NYC. With articles in numerous press including Rolling Stone and Fortune magazine.   


Inspiration

My Junior year a gallery invited my commercial art class to have a show. We went on the streets and found old armoires and chiffarobes to paint on. Eventually they became too expensive to ship to shows around the world. We finally decided chairs were cheaper to transit. But now I had a design to surface ratio problem. I toke an interest in chair design. Using the gallerist Italian connections lead to my studying under the Italian GodFather of Postmodernism and Memphis, Alessandro Mandini in Milan. Memphis is the whole look of the 80's. This design movement derived from everything that struck a cord with me. Art Deco, Bauhaus, Streamline, Minimalism and Pop Art.   

Techniques

Lichtensteins' simplified brush stroke inspired me to streamline my graphic symbols to emboss a silhouette of an idea to viewers. As I move back and forth from pencil to marker to computer and then to paint. I'm able to create many color palette and composition choices with AI software. I swim in shapes and color and paint drips.
