Neil Dawson

Neil Dawson has always enjoyed the freedom, spontaneity and escapism of painting. After becoming inspired during his travels, he rekindled his passion for art and is now known for his emotive city portraits.


Inspired by the newspapers, TV and cityscapes that infiltrate his everyday life, Neil’s old passion for painting was sparked once more during his travels. Surrounded by exciting new cultures, experiences and environments, he used his camera as an artistic outlet until he could return home and brush off his palette.

Whenever inspiration strikes, he tears out references from magazines or scribbles notes and sketches on scraps of paper.

He says: “I am on a constant learning curve with my painting. Even in a disastrous piece, I can usually find something – whether it’s a colour scheme, mark-making method, or composition – that can be developed for a new work. It’s an exciting and evolving process that keeps me fresh, inspired and coming back for more.”
