Philip Hazard

Philip Hazard holds a B.A. from the University of Toledo (Ohio) in Film and Design and studied screenwriting and film directing at Tisch School of the Arts (New York University, New York City). He received his M.F.A. degree from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) in 2007. A native of Toledo, Hazard lived in New York City for over 25 years, co-founding the Let There Be Neon studio and being inspired by the energized and gritty sides of a big city aesthetic. He also maintained an independent studio in Tucson, Arizona for many years. His diverse personal life experiences influence the content and subject matter of his multi-layered mixed media work, in which he combines and layers oil and acrylic paint, photographic silkscreen, mixed media collage and assemblage on canvas, with neon used as the focus and emphasis within his work.

Hazard’s artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally. His artwork has been published in multiple books and magazines, including the books Tools as Art, Contemporary Neon and the Japanese magazine Pronto. His artwork is included in numerous public and private collections including the National Building Museum (Washington, D.C.) and the U.S. Embassy in Nepal (Katmandu).
