The trio displays the artist's talent at incorporating a pleasing darker colour palette, with the use of greys and monochrome colours, this works fantastically well with his depiction of grey rain soaked roads and high-rise buildings within the vista.
Neil remains very busy with his originals and painting commissions and his schedule is always full; not many of us know that he is also an accomplished figurative artist & many of his commissions are portraits. Do contact us should you want your own exciting, Neil Dawson commission booked!
Neil Dawson has been a published artist for over 10 years in the UK, with sell out limited edition prints on the medium of 'paper' and on ‘canvas board.’ His highly collected original art are the prize possessions of many homes in the UK and Worldwide.
I think you will agree, he is known best for his iconic imagery of the cities: London, New York and Venice (in that order!) & those instantly recognisable paintings of: London Black Cabs, Red Buses and New York Yellow Taxies.
Dawson’s talent became evident during his schooling at Bancroft’s School in Essex and he decided to pursue it as a young man. Initially studying at Central Saint Martins (CSM) in London, Neil found it got in the way of his artistic flow, so he started a different career path studying economics and finance. After some years working in the ‘City’ of London he left banking and returned to art, still in his twenties & what he felt was his true calling.
Extensive travelling was the spark that returned him to his easel and re-enthused his love for the paint brush, including extensive photography and observation of different peoples & cultures. Eventually he established a studio at his home in Epping, in leafy Essex.
Inspiration can come at any time for Neil and he will often draw onto a notepad for later reflection. He is driven by the fact he is constantly learning something new whether that be a new: colour pallete, means of mark making an artwork or creating a paint texture. He feels every very sketch allows him to develop and element that will end up in his next painting.
Interestingly Neil works initially from photos and can be working on up to a dozen pieces at a time, gradually working on the picture as a whole and making use of the brush and his fingertips.
