Brendan Neiland Art

BRENDAN NEILAND (ENGLAND, B. 1941)

Brendan Neiland was born on 23 October 1941 in Lichfield, Staffordshire. Neiland has been interested in architectural subjects his whole life. His distinctive paintings contain generally quite stark buildings but softened by reflections in water or in the glass. With effective use of light, made mysterious through reflection and distortion, he presents familiar structures in a new and romantic fashion. In 1991, Neiland was commissioned by InterCity to create a series of five posters in honor of the electrification of the East Coast Main Line. Neiland also produced posters for the new InterCity line to the West Country and also for the Highland Lines for Scotrail. Elected in 1992 to the Royal Academy, he was appointed Keeper of the Royal Academy Schools in 1998 and was credited with revitalizing what had been a struggling art school. In 2004, he was expelled from the RA under circumstances believed to relate to an internal power struggle. Fellow Academician Sir Peter Blake resigned from the Academy in protest at Neiland's expulsion.
