Nekos paintings are larger than life; even massive gallery spaces must compete with the grandeur of his pieces. Rich earth tones, roughly textured canvases and geometric shapes complement a dark mixture of abstract characters and temperamental lines. Nekos aggravated passion for painting reveals his inner agitation that his surroundings have brought to him.
Observing San Diego lifestyle and absorbing personalities around him, Neko is a self-taught artist who grew up in Golden Hill, moved to East County, then back to Golden Hill. His many encounters with weak women with low self-esteem, drugs, and dirty money are his subjects. He is also known for his characters affectionately called sluts. When Neko isnt painting he works construction, builds furniture, and occasionally likes to dip a toe in the sand at the beach.
