About this artist:

Neal Greig is a renowned Irish artist, born in Belfast in 1965.  At an early age he identified his need to peruse his creative passions.  His vision and talent took him to the Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland, where he graduated with a B.A. (Hons) in Fine Art in 1987.  His desire to hone his talent lead him to completing a Post Graduate Diploma in Fine Art in 1990, and his unique talent provided him with the Andrew Grant Scholarship to realize this.

Over the years his career excelled and attracted many awards included the coveted Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award.  The widow of Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner established this foundation for the sole purpose of recognising highly talented artists, such as Neal.

Neal often paints outside, responding to the day as it changes and unfolds. He documents the light, space and texture, spontaneously painting the changes, observing and marking the passing of time.
At times a vigorous approach is employed, capturing a sense of urgency in an effort to catch the changing light. This could then pass on to analytical observation, seeking to emulate the subtle complexity of natural forms.
