Neil Myers

In 2003, Neil and his wife explored the American Southwest, where he found himself drawn to New Mexican and Arizonan vistas that he interprets in his neo-Fauvist style. Little wonder that some of his favorite subjects are the mighty saguaros, old missions, the stunning red rocks of Sedona and magnificent views of the Grand Canyon.

Artist: Neil Myers

From: Arizona

Medium: Oil painting

Born and raised in Elkin, North Carolina, Neil Myers’ first brush with art was with his mother, who just happened to be an accomplished painter. Later on in his life, Neil attended Lenoir-Rhyne University, North Carolina. His sojourn there enabled him to spend an interesting semester abroad in Aix-En Provence, France, where he studied French language, literature and art. In France, Neil visited many famous painting sites of Cezanne, Gauguin and Van Gogh, which impressed him indelibly.

In coming years, Neil plans to head north and explore Utah’s Monument Valley and more of Northern New Mexico’s Chaco Canyon. His work definitely is reminiscent of the Post-Impressionist masters, but with a distinctly Southwestern touch.

Neil Myers’ paintings and artwork can be viewed and are available for purchase at a Scottsdale art gallery, The Marshall Gallery of Fine art in Old Town Scottsdale on Main Street.

“The painting was delivered a few minutes ago, and it’s even more stunning that I remember in the gallery…I am absolutely delighted!” – Ed & Judi May, Collectors


“I received the painting yesterday and could not be more pleased…photos never quite capture the beauty of a work of art.” – Jared Cohen, Owner of 6 Neil Myers paintings


“I love the tactile surface that Neil achieves in his paintings. Great work…” – David Kassan, painter


“For the number of years that I have known the work of Neil Myers, I have been able to notice the evolution of his painting, in particular, his paintings of the West – I find in his search to paint the mountains, an affiliation with the landscapes of Provence and especially les Alpilles, that Van Gogh painted majestically — Too bad for Neil that Provence is so far from where he lives…” – Jean-Claude Quilici, painter


“With a Fauvist’s brilliant sense of color, Myers reinterprets the Southwest with a more European sensibility.” – Mark Mussari, Author, Art Critic
