Vernon O’Meally

Abstract Expressionism

October 26, 2020

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Vernon O’Meally is an American contemporary artist based in New York, known for his paintings, sculptures, and installations. He studied architecture and graphic design at the Art Institute of Atlanta, graduating in 2010, after which he moved to NYC, quickly becoming inspired by the city’s electrifying pace. O'Meally’s approach is heavily informed by a fixation on the fundamentality of lines in all senses. Based on the premise that lines are the building block of all visual communication, he soon developed his signature “linescapes.” These structured linear configurations celebrate the mystical inter-connectivity of urban life.
