Kerman, based in Brooklyn, maintains a studio and a personal gallery, a retrospective of his works. He is officially represented by Saphira & Ventura Gallery in Midtown, Manhattan address. Under the auspices of the gallery, he has exhibited his artwork in France, Brazil, China, Singapore, South Korea and Hong Kong where he has established many faithful collectors.
Neil Kerman gives credit to his skills and passion to his uncle, Jack Adler, who was a longtime illustrator and colorist at DC Comics. Jack Adler used to use bold colors to generate visual excitement in the Batman and Superman comics.
Kerman’s works are a profound color chemistry experiment. He describes it as “abstract art that has a visual language that provokes emotions, feelings, textures and a mixture of colors.” His mixtures of colors and textures creates a memorable, dynamic, and an exuberant environmental experience.
Neil Kerman explores the art world with sensitivity and multiple talents. Expressing his sentiments by holding exhibitions, holding lectures, workshops and sharing his thoughts and knowledge in the four corners of the world.
Kerman harnesses his art and generosity as a special tool- manipulating colors and shapes as a stimulus for relief to treat Alzheimer's patients. His works are not only focused on boundless provocative aesthetics but also heavily concentrated on social giving.
Kerman’s primary occupation is healthcare centers and retirement homes. He has lectured on the subject of health and aging in London, São Paulo, and his hometown of New York. He has exhibited at the United Nations, sponsored by the Saphira and Ventura gallery in collaboration with the Portuguese Language Society to the United Nations.
As a painter, some of his key accomplishments includes: a successful solo exhibition at the UN Headquarters 2017, an exhibition in Italy during the Venice Art Biennale (2019), a conference and exhibition at MIIT Museum in Turin, Italy (Museo internazionale Italia Arte) (2019), and Art & Awareness conference and exhibition at the Centro Cultural Correios - Rio de Janeiro. At this event he boasted a record of 42,571 visitors and the Brazilian National Post Office service honored him by launching a commemorative Alzheimer’s theme Neil Kerman official postage stamp.
He has been selected to participate at the Venice Biennale of Architecture, “Time Space Existence” Exhibition, organized by the European Cultural Center in Venice. His work will be presented in collaboration with the well established architect, Edo Rocha at Saphira & Ventura Gallery Salon at Palazzo Mora. One of the greatest challenges for Neil Kerman in 2020-21 is to work with different segments, such as developing projects in partnership with architects.
