Born in Oregon in 1979, Adam Miller began an apprenticeship with artist Allen Jones when he was just thirteen years old. Three years later, he was accepted into the Florence Academy of Art where he continued his training under Michael John Angel studying Baroque and Mannerist paintings throughout Europe. During this time Miller became visually inspired by narrative painting and appropriated the styles to interpret contemporary folklore through a polytheistic lens. His art is also oriented to question the effects of technological change on human experience and progress and realize the struggle of finding and creating meaning in a world on the brink of both expansion and decay. Miller’s paintings explore the intersection of mythology, ecology and humanism and use the human form as a vehicle of feeling and thought that transcends literal, specific representations. For this reason, his paintings are also aligned with the Mannerist style creating a unique dialogue that facilitates Miller being recognized as a “rising star of realism” and “master in any era.” Miller’s work has been exhibited across the United States and Europe and has been made to fulfill commissions by keen art aficionados such as Robert Pamplin Jr., Chairman of the Board of the Portland Art Museum, Mike Tyson and Eric Rhodes, publisher of Fine Art Connoisseur.
