STUART MCALPINE MILLER
Scottish-born artist Stuart McAlpine Miller, a graduate of Glasgow School of Art, displays all the characteristics of his home nation – tenacity, determination and a wry sense of humour. “Unlike a lot of artists I am a painter who owns up to living in 2012 – I do live in the real world and my art reflects this” says McAlpine Miller.
An admirer of traditional Old Masters such as Caravaggio and Bosch, McAlpine Miller nevertheless says he is most influenced by Andy Warhol - following the cult painter’s ethos that art is ultimately ‘a throw away thing that has value’.
“Warhol's views on mass consumerism and the way he translated these into his art is something I really relate to and I hope my art does something similar and stands the test of time” explains McAlpine Miller.
Technically brilliant, McAlpine Miller’s provocative and visually arresting images of beautiful women and nostalgic cartoon images are a winning combination, garnering praise from art collectors and critics alike; Estelle Lovatt being a particular supporter of McAlpine Miller and his work.
