Artist Neil Pinkett
Neil Pinkett was born in St Just, Cornwall and has lived in Cornwall most of his life. The dramatic environment inspiring him to paint. Neil often works with a palette knife to express the forces of nature, the ever-changing elements, cloud formations, piercing blue skies over acres of red bracken and the raw beauty and geographic diversity of the landscape of West Penwith.
Neil has become one of the foremost landscape painters in Cornwall today.
He has spent a great deal of time painting in and around Newlyn which has influenced his work significantly having become increasingly engaged with the working life of the people who live and work in this famous fishing port. Neil has exhibited throughout the UK including London, Oxford, Devon and regularly in solo exhibitions in Cornwall. His work has also been toured in America.
