Neil Moore was born in Leicester in 1950. He studied at Loughborough College of Art and Design from1968-72. He had his first solo exhibition in 1973 before taking up the post as ‘Artist at sea’ with the British merchant navy from 1974- 76. Now a veteran of over twenty solo exhibitions, he has exhibited with the Nicholas Treadwell Gallery, London (until 1977-94), East West Gallery, London (1995-2009), Bo-lee Gallery, Bath/London (2009+).
Neil Moore’s uncompromising figurative paintings, combining impeccable technique and thoughtful content, have been exhibited widely in Europe and the U.S.A.
Almost uniquely among contemporary realist painters (but in a long tradition stretching back through Courbet to Caravaggio) he employs a classical realist technique to explore the ordinary mysteries of our lives.
A passionate advocate of the continuing relevance of drawing and painting from the figure (both as an essential activity for developing visual awareness and as an artform in itself) he is a very experienced and knowledgeable teacher.
