After practicing Architecture in New Mexico for over 35 years, he retired and began his career in fine art. He is self-taught exclusively in the use of oils on canvas and his subject matter has been devoted to streetscapes, landscapes and portraits of children, friends and public officials. Neo has been honored to exhibit at the “Master Works of New Mexico Artists” held at the State Fair.
Neo’s works are exhibited in private collections among friends, relatives and clients located in New Mexico, Texas and Florida. Among his first major paintings sold in Santa Fe, NM includes the “Fiesta at La Fonda” exhibited in the Lounge of the La Fonda Hotel. His streetscape paintings are poignant scenes of the early 30’s in Santa Fe and Las Vegas, while his landscape paintings are of places around New Mexico and Arizona and paintings created from his imagination.
His works are intriguing, be sure to stop in and see all of the works exhibited in the Natural Accents Gallery the next time you are visiting the Historic Taos Plaza. You'll find us just adjacent to the main entrance of the Plaza on the right corner after exiting the cross walk.
