Since beginning his career as an artist in 2008, abstract artist Neil Chander has held nature as a significant source of inspiration in his painting practice. His passion for cycling, hiking, golfing, and other outdoor activities has contributed to elements of his work throughout the years, taking on various forms, paint media, and expressions.
His recent works incorporate elements of daily life and highlight the often-overlooked details of our routines and experiences, ultimately finding beauty in the mundane. This shift in focus has allowed Neil to create works that challenge his approach to painting by incorporation of new concepts, techniques, and subject matter - a process that often leads to "happy accidents". Chander invites his viewers to seek out the elements of nature in his work; to bring a sense of calm and happiness expressed in oils and acrylics.
Chander’s work has been featured in various art shows, including the Toronto Public Library. He is currently based in Toronto, ON.
