Ariel Neo is a versatile interdisciplinary artist from Brittany, France, following her unique vision in the fields of oil painting, photography and film. Her inspiration springs primarily from nature and her distress at the damage humanity is causing to the environment.
As a painter, she makes bold, colorful totemic images on large, round canvases, often installed and photographed in outdoor settings where they take on an unusual and profound resonance.
Several of her short films, including Rainslide (2:1) and her most recent release, Firefalls, have broken onto the international stage, winning numerous awards and inspiring audiences.
