Anything else you would like to add?

 

 My name is Larry Neal and art is what makes me who I am. Art opens up the door to express the feelings of everything in the word visually. I like art for the message it brings to people, and the feelings is gives just by the visual aid. My goals as an artist are to open the mind and hearts of people who misunderstand the condition of the world. For people to change they have to except what they do wrong. My art focuses on native culture and bible based scriptures.
“Art of the native” is a style of art that I created to express and feelings and events of the native culture. “Art of the Native” will make people think about the condition of the world, where we stand as human beings, how we treat one another. This art is influenced by the history and culture of Native Americans of all tribes.
