Harland Miller (British, b.1964) is a notable artist and writer who has contributed to the Abstract Art and Figurative Art movement in the 21st century. Born in Yorkshire, UK, Miller earned his BA and MA in Art History from the Chelsea College of Art in London, UK. After receiving his degrees, Miller traveled extensively throughout London, Germany, and the United States.
Miller lived and exhibited his work in New York, Berlin, and New Orleans. In 2000, Miller achieved critical acclaim for his first novel, Slow Down Arthur, Stick to Thirty, which featured a young boy who travels around England on adventures with a David Bowie impersonator. In 2001, the artist painted a series of paintings based on the covers of Penguin classic dust covers. In this series, Miller combined Pop Art, Abstraction, and Figurative paintings. He continues to create works with this theme.
Miller was named the Writer in Residence at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, MA, in 2002. In 2008, Miller was named the curator at an exhibit to celebrate the birth of Edgar Allen Poe (American, 1809–1849). Poe has been a consistent source of inspiration to Miller's work. The exhibit was housed in two separate venues in London. Miller’s solo exhibitions include shows at the White Cube in London, UK, and the Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York, NY. The artist currently lives and works in London.
