Neal Tait - BA Fine Art: Painting Associate Lecturer
Neal Tait’s paintings and drawings explore tensions between the figurative and the abstract, the beautiful and the grotesque, the logical and the absurd.
Frequently based on found materials and media such as photographs, magazines and newspapers, his works provide glimpses into a dreamlike parallel universe, one that evokes the rhetorical logic of fairy tales or the absurdist humour of Surrealism.
In 2001, Tait participated in an artist residency at the British School at Rome. He received a BFA from Chelsea School of Art in 1991 and an MFA from the Royal College of Art in 1993.
