American Contemporary Artist and Illustrator based in Denver, Colorado. Miller's work is inspired by Vintage Americana and ephemera, turn of the century posters and adverts, cigarette cards and matchbooks, combined with a unique surrealism. The colours and intricate detail suggest a nostalgia, with a narrative of long forgotten childhood books, both mystical and beguiling to the viewer, combined with a contemporary twist.
The works have a narrative, which is left open to the viewer to interpret, but is led by Miller's guiding rule 'Possibly, but not likely'. In homage to the older world they draw inspiration from, each work has a hand made quality - from the hand pulled screen prints, to carefully constructed wooden frames and boxes in which the works are displayed, all created by Miller in her Denver studio.
Miller often collaborates with her artist husband, Ravi Zupa.
American Contemporary Artist based in Denver, Colorado, whose detailed and intricate work encompasses collage, painting, print making, sculpture, film making and more. A major up and coming artist, Zupa's themes draw from world cultures and iconographies, mythologies, vintage print, Renaissance woodcuts, Pop Culture and literary references to create eclectic, ornate and politically charged artworks. The result is an artwork that uses images, spirituality and revolution from around the Globe in the search of a Universal expression through design, pattern and evocative forms.
The celebration of the most ancient ways of making art are also present - each and every image contained in Zupa's work is drawn by himself by hand, and with his appreciation of the original Flemish woodcut artists of the Renaissance comes a love of original printmaking.
Zupa has collaborated with Shepard Fairey and Obey as part of the Obey Artist Series, and produced poster artwork for the bands Pearl Jam and The Pixies. Zupa also collaborates on works with his artist wife, Arna Miller.
