Atlanta artist Miles Davis received his BFA in Painting from Auburn University in 2003 and exhibits both nationally and internationally. He currently serves as Director at Large for the South Cobb Arts Alliance and has held a previous position on the inaugural Board of Ambassadors with the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia.
The acrylic and mixed media art of Miles Davis explores the crossroads of modern spirituality and science and seeks to examine those complexities in an honest way. Inspired by the evolving relationship between personal and cultural identity, he uses crisp illustrative aesthetics and dramatic symbolism to engage the viewer’s sensibilities to the human condition. With visionary and dreamlike symbolism in much of his paintings, his style most closely aligns with neosurrealism, a modern day subgenre of surrealism.
Miles utilizes a relatively loose and organic process to evoke an ethereal resonance aiming to relate to even the most artistically uninitiated. Striving for a unique accessibility, Miles endeavors to bypass perceived elitist tendencies and create work that speaks to everyone despite their art education.
The artwork of Miles Davis has been embraced worldwide, and he has achieved recognition both nationally and internationally. His paintings and murals are included in corporate and private collections throughout the United States. He has worked with a number of musicians including gold selling recording artist Sevendust and is consistently doing commission work. Amid exhibiting in various galleries, expos, and shops, Miles teaches art classes and private lessons to children and adults and is creator of the children’s book series Butterpup & friends™.
