Neil Farber

Artist Bio

Taking a simple but expressive line drawing style that is reminiscent of children’s book illustrations, Neil Farber’s work blurs the boundary betwen childhood fear and grown-up fantasy. The artist has created a world populated by an odd cast of characters that includes waif-like children, cats, dogs, and ghosts, combining innocence with a complicated and often foreboding sense of the absurd. Indeed, it is out of these contradictions that the work’s dark humor is born. Farber’s drawings remind us that among the range of emotions, humor is arguably the most complicated – and perhaps the most human.  (bio)
