Neil Simon Poyuzina "Memorial Auction" December 7, 1974 - August 18, 2010
Escondido resident Neil Simon Poyuzina was a long time self-declared slave for art, and had great passion and creativity within his medium. Born in Watkins Glen, New York on December 7, 1974. Choosing Art for his studies during college, he spent his life continuously working and learning about his passion. His personal style came from his subconscious, using that as his inspiration, while embracing external influences allowing them to take shape abstractly in his work. He believed that true inspiration happened naturally and was not forced. He believed that as an artist that his responsibility was to further humanity in the creative learning process.
"I am inspired by many things; mostly nature. But it’s hard to single things out. I like to feed my head to see what my fingers will do with it. My work as of now is going along the lines of bridging classical and contemporary. I’ve been working with marble dust plaster and photo transfers. I don’t have complete control over either of these processes and that is what I get excited about. I like to conduct, not control. This is a personal philosophy in both my creations and my life." ~
"It's more for the love than actually making money from it," he said. "That's why it's called Art Slave."(on his previously owned Los Angeles gallery ~NSP (June 22, 2007)
"Everything is a Medium. All Things are Art." (Neil Poyuzina, 2010).
