Adam Miller, 1979 | Renaissance / Baroque style painter

Adam Miller's paintings explore the intersection between mythology, ecology and humanism.
Visually inspired by baroque and Hellenistic narrative painting they take a polytheistic approach to contemporary folklore, questions of progress and the experience of human narrative in the face of technological change and the struggle to find meaning in a world poised between expansion and decay.
Miller's work is mannerist in it's use of the human form as a vehicle of feeling and thought beyond the literal representation of a particular person.

Born in 1979 in Oregon. He began an apprenticeship to artist Allen Jones at thirteen years old and at Sixteen, was accepted to the prestigious Florence Academy Of Art in Florence, Italy where he underwent an extensive training in classical painting techniques and studied the masterpieces of the Renaissance firsthand.
For the next four years Miller traveled throughout Europe studying the masters.
His work has been commissioned by Robert Pamplin Jr., the Chairman of the Board of the Portland Art Museum, Mike Tyson, and Eric Rhodes, publisher of Fine Art Connoiseur. Miller has exhibited in both the U.S and Europe.
Adam Miller has been described in reviews as a "rising star of realism" and it was said that he "would be considered a master in any era".

Con i suoi dipinti Adam Miller "esplora l'intersezione tra la mitologia, l'ecologia e l'umanesimo".
