Artist’s Studio and Gallery
Neil Nagy is a well known artist residing in Palm Springs, with a studio also in the Downtown San Pedro Waterfront Arts District.
After gaining exposure in the early 1960s to the art of the Bay Area Figurative Movement, Nagy adopted the laid-back attitude of the period resulting in a lighter and more humanist interpretation of the severe existential Northern European styles and the American Abstract Expressionism. In 2006 he was selected for an important “Bay Area Figurative” exhibition where he showed alongside Diebenkorn, Park, Oliveira and others. Nagy’s focus became steeped in figurative expressionism, in which he used the human form in mild abstractions to articulate spiritual and physical existentialism. For him, the single human form was the most powerful means of delivering works of poignant beauty
that also carried intense emotional messages. Nagy recognizes his debt to history from ancient Chinese and Mayan art through contemporary figurative art.
Neil Nagy has held exhibitions internationally and has been included in a number of corporate and private collections.
