Brian Neal Sensabaugh was born in 1974 and raised in rural Arkansas. He now lives and works in Houston, Texas. Brian Neal’s childhood in a Southern country setting limited his earliest artistic expressions. His struggles in this conservative environment provided Sensabaugh with some of his first creative inspirations. Upon making art as an adult, Brian Neal shattered all fear of self-expression and began rebelling against gender stereotypes. Through his use of very feminine media, Brian Neal exaggerates this rebellion. He uses these found objects to create assemblages and installations.
Brian Neal’s work has been shown at G Gallery, Lawndale Art Center and Rudolph Projects/ArtScan Gallery, all of Houston and 500X Gallery of Dallas. In 2003, he was chosen as a New Texas Talent by Craighead-Green Gallery of Dallas. His solo show, DEAR Camp, was featured at Lawndale Art Center in 2007 and was chronicled in a documentary of the same name. Brian Neal’s work has been published in Houston Modern Luxury Magazine, 002Magazine of Houston, Arts Houston Magazine and Houston Press.
