Neil McClelland

Biography: 

I grew up in Quebec and currently live in Victoria, BC.  I received my MFA from the University of Victoria in 2014 and I have exhibited in artist-run, public and commercial galleries across Canada. I teach painting and drawing at the Vancouver Island School of Art and have taught in other art education institutions in BC and Alberta.  I seek to bring together the painterly and the conceptual by combining an approach that emphasizes mark making and the materiality of paint with a reflective engagement in the conversation about what it means to make and view paintings now.
