Jimmy O'Neal

Atlanta, Georgia

Working with a variety of media, including painting, photography and sculpture, SCAD alumnus Jimmy O’Neal (M.F.A., painting, 2016; B.F.A., illustration, 1989) creates immersive public works that explore audience interactivity and compositional transience. Often coated with mirrored paint, his large scale-installations engage the relationship between process, participation and popular culture. Born in Atlanta, Georgia, O’Neal has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, Florida; the Santa Fe Art Institute, New Mexico; the SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia, and elsewhere. His Seven Cymatic Sonata was recognized as one of the 50 best public commissions by the Americans for the Arts Public Art Network Year in Review in 2012. O’Neal lives and works in Asheville, North Carolina.
