Born 1975 in Los Angeles, Bill McNeill moved to the Midwest in the early 80's. Long rides on public transit provided a colossal spectrum of colors, styles, and imagery. Always staying true to his foundation holding personal spirit and creativity above formal training, his journey through life has provided the platform for his work today.
His vast medium selections motivated by natural elements, industrial textures, paint, romanticism and modern design fuel his works. Often visually bold and consistently engaging, his work provoked by desire, beauty, emotion and identity. A mixture of textural paintings and photography, the works reside in an imaginative state of mind.
The artist seeks to always elevate personal growth in delicate but aggressive, thoughtful, beautifully created contemporary pieces. The work is always personal with an excessive passion to deliver a celebration of powerful and honest imagery.
Vastly influenced by water our emotional state can change with just one drop.
Destructive in many ways water can also have a beauty that captures our soul. When it rains many believe that a higher power is speaking in some form. The washing away of pain proves to offer a new start, which intern captivates the mind to new beginnings. We are left with a result of clarity but should always be mindful of its overwhelming power.
