David Neel

The Ten Commandments
grunt gallery
January 5 - 29, 2005

For the twenty years David Neel has bridged the ambiguous space between traditional and contemporary Native art. He is a contemporary multi-media artist who has strong links to Kwagiutl culture. A fifth generation Native artist, his work incorporates traditional motifs and ideas, though the end result is very much cosmopolitan.

He is not content to stay in one place creatively, and pushes himself to continually integrate new media and ideas. Having begun his career as a photographer he is also a published author, jeweler, print-maker, sculptor and painter. For the last several years jewellery and painting have been the focus of his work.
