When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Gabriel Neale is a British artist born in 1978. And that's about all the biographical detail I can muster. Some folks just keep a low profile on the internet. But you can see his work, which has evolved dramatically over the last seven years or so. It began as graphic illustration-like work depicting bleak interpretations of daily existence in modern England, with stylized figures echoing the work of Egon Schiele . It has since morphed into a hyper-horror show of the human body in which sex, birth and death are all equated as a grotesque parade of bodily transformation. His work is not for the squeamish. And yet, that graphics look still still lingers, giving the work a certain degree of playfulness that attracts the viewer even while the subject matter repels. The result is compelling.
