Greetings, my name is Hubert Neal Jr, and I am an American Artist of Belizean descent from Chicago. I currently live and work in Bentonville, Arkansas, where I founded 'the visual poets society', an Art Studio and Gallery. I studied Art at The Chicago Academy for the Arts and The School of Architecture, Art, and Planning at Cornell University. I have exhibited in places as varied as Jamaica, Belize, and India, as well as here at home in New York, Chicago, and Miami. My work addresses social issues and personal life experiences.
Artist's have power; power to influence, power to inspire, and power to reveal. Some time ago, my greatest motivation was to be the most technically proficient artist. I realized I could do more; so I use my art to address issues and contribute to social progress.
Hubert Neal, Jr.
