Philip Hazard

A native of Toledo, OH, Philip Hazard has an MFA in Painting from Bowling Green State University, a BA in Film & Design from the University of Toledo and he has studied screenwriting and film directing at New York University Film School.  Beginning in 1975, Hazard was instrumental in developing the visionary impact of neon as a contemporary medium in New York City, where he was in the neon sign industry for over 25 years, eventually integrating neon and painting into his own unique fine art form.  The inspiration for Hazard’s paintings stems from personal obsessions, idealized pop culture and ready-made collage materials.  He describes his work as "neon and mixed media painting combined with collage."   Hazard has exhibited nationally and internationally.  His work is in many public and private collections and featured in several books and magazines, including Tools as Art, Contemporary Neon and the Japanese magazine Pronto.  He has been showing at Zenith Gallery since 1988.
