Terran McNeely is a painter with a background in visual design. His work is influenced by the people and spaces around him through a bold and graphic lens. His images feature both figurative and representational subject matter intentionally placed into his compositions with carefully considered colour palettes. McNeely’s gentle postures and decorative flowers subvert traditional notions of maleness, asserting that men can be vulnerable and gentle. His portraits are equal parts assertions and invitations toward tenderness.
