Biography

Rather than depicting singular or necessarily even real locations, Neil Raitt distils his landscapes into artificial motifs which generate an uncanny sense of place. These motifs are repeated across his canvases, seamlessly tesselating with the potential to extend infinitely. Whilst their repetition appears almost mechanical, each vignette is individually rendered by Raitt in saturated hues that echo the style of popular television-painter Bob Ross. His unique visual language – somewhere between representation and abstraction – offers a reflection upon the possibilities of artistic production in the digital age.  

Neil Raitt was born in Leicester in 1986. He studied Fine Art at Norwich University College of the Arts before receiving his MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art, London in 2013. The following year, Raitt received the Catlin Art Prize, followed by the Northern Trust Acquisition Prize in 2016.  He has exhibited internationally, including at the the Goss-Michael Foundation in Dallas and the Centre d’Art Contemporain La Halle des Bouchers in Vienne. Raitt’s work is in the permanent collections of the DePaul Art Museum, Chicago; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles; the Saatchi Collection, London; and the Frank-Suss Collection, London.

Raitt lives and works in London.
