Illustrateur : Neal Fox

Neal Fox is a London based artist.

Born in 1981, he studied at Camberwell Art College and the Royal College of Art. While at the RCA he co-founded Le Gun, the art collective and publication of the same name.  Since graduating in 2005 Fox’s work depicting a phantasmagoric journey through the detritus and mythology of pop culture has led to solo exhibitions  in London, Munich, Berlin and  Paris, and group shows from Brussels to Beijing alongside Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Andy Warhol and Joseph Beuys. In 2013 he and Le Gun featured prominently in the exhibition Memory Palace at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Fox has exhibited at the art fairs Art Brussels, Artissima, Drawing Now, FIAC and Art Basel. From a life long fascination with the tales of his dead grandfather, a World War 2 bomber pilot, writer, and hell raiser, Fox’s large scale ink drawings have developed into increasingly layered celebrations of the debauched and iconoclastic characters whose ideas have helped shape our collective consciousness. Remixing and collaging events and connecting trails of thought, he imagines Francis Bacon and William Burroughs taking tea in the ancient Egyptian after life, or Captain Beefheart selling a vacuum cleaner to Aldous Huxley at the Doors of Perception. The British filmmaker Peter Bach is currently working on a TV documentary about Neal Fox.
