A Chicago native, Neal moved to Indianapolis in 1994 and has been painting the city ever since. His work relates to the iconic cityscapes of the early 20th century, showing the bright lights of downtown glistening with newness and alive with energy as cars hiss by pedestrians walking this way and that. His work often uses multiple vantage points to create an almost collage-like scene. You may see neighborhoods and landmarks that are not necessarily geographically connected, but work together to build the vibrancy of the heart of the city in each piece. It could be said that his subject matter is the personification of the city itself. Neal's work can be seen in many annual shows and exhibitions and is included in the permanent collection of the Indiana State Museum.
