Neil McClelland is a Canadian artist originally from the Gatineau Hills, Quebec. He lives in Victoria, British Columbia where he received his MFA from the University of Victoria in 2014. He teaches drawing and painting at the Vancouver Island School of Art and sessionally at the University of Victoria. He has had solo and group exhibitions in BC, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec.
McClelland draws on personal experience, memory, imagination, art history and cinematic influences to make paintings that engage narrative and symbol in the exploration of the quest for perfect happiness, the search for paradises on earth, and human relationships to nature.
