Artist: David McNeley
Artwork: Lady McTiki
David McNeley, also known as “McBiff,” is a traditional artist from Huntington Beach, CA specializing in acrylic paint. Clean simplicity and hidden surprises characterize his paintings with American mid-century modern styles. Inspired by Disney artists that came before him and a healthy union with a paintbrush, McBiff has created a style that is both familiar and enthusiastically new. McBiff is a self-taught artist. His techniques are his own and have taken many years to develop. You could consider McBiff your typical artist living most of his time in thought. People close to him regularly have to snap him out of a gaze to get his attention back on point!
Imagination is a world everyone should enjoy past childhood; just also try to pay attention to the ones you love. If you can mold the two into one, you’ll always be happy and laugh in the most inappropriate situations!
