Neti was neither born in the late sixties, nor the early nineties. He does not align himself with any modern art movement though he has been hailed as one of Andromeda’s great unemployed surrealist, fantasy, flexus, post non-traditional artisists. The Netizens who “people” his work are not based on any beings he has ever personally met in his extensive travels and are not conjured through any external chemical means. There has been speculation, however, regarding the nature of the unique electro-chemical “inbalance” resulting in his spontaneous visions (hallucinations?), which he has diligently copied exactly as they appear to him in his mind, which he is rumored to have lost somewhere back in the latter part of one of the previous three centuries. Neti is credited with not having been “educated” in an accredited art school (though he is entirely certifiable) and yet, perhaps by immaculate contraception, is somehow innately in possession of the secret knowledge of the processes concocted over the last 500 years by lessor artists. The acquisition of his considerable prowess has not been attributed to the process of osmosis, though he has often been cited as the Moses of the fine art world, partly because of his ability to conjure serpents from simple sticks of wood with hair on one end, along with his being entirely unqualified to speak on God’s behalf. Neti sightings are extremely rare. But who knows, you might get lucky.
