A founding member, along with Marcel Dzama and Michael Dumontier, of the Royal Art Lodge group, Neil Farber’s solo practice is characterized by a fusion of fantasy, whimsy, and existential pondering. Farber employs a childlike aesthetic in his brightly colored figurative drawings that teem with a diverse, idiosyncratic cast of characters. While his style recalls children’s book illustrations and naive drawings, Farber’s content explores a deep range of emotions and social dynamics through allusions to depression, conflict, and persecution. “There is a darkness that is a large part of our style,” Farber has said of the group’s work. “Taboos are always going to be interesting. Our style has its range and there is room for explicitness in violence, but not at the expense of our classy, highbrow image.”
