|Neal Barbosa||Biography: Biography
Name:Neal Barbosa Place of birth: Santa Ana, CA Date of birth: 9/23/66 I grew up in El Toro CA. My mother tells that I have been drawing since I was 9 years old I didn';t feel like a real Artist until the mid 80s when I left Eltoro, and moved north to Sonoma County. My uncle bought me my first airbrush and turned me on to the artworks of Stanley Mouse, Andalton Kelley, Riscard Ash, Pat Ryan, Don Delew and Nat Quick. I was really inspired by there full colour t-shirts and monster calendars, and sharp images began airbrushing. Sometimes 4 to 5 hrs strait. I stayed with the techneek for several years, then in the 90s I became interested in acrylic paints, I began painting acrylic on canvass, I am self taught and have had no formal art lessons. My artwork is spontaneous, and I enjoy painting abstracts. I like to paint strange things to get peoples attention. I love to sing my art work before I finish it. Things and places I've painted include shoes, pants, couches, pillow cases, ties, mattcornfoots ceiling in his house, sammy hagars jacket, the bathroom at Johnnys Java in coffee house in cotatie, CA t-shirts doors, wooden ducks, telephons, beads, and many other items too numerous to list.
