Stormie Mills is an Australian based artist who started painting in 1984 and has since then been exploring the human condition through his work, taking his iconic characters off the walls in the street and onto canvas in the gallery. Working in a restricted palette of black representing dirt, white the attempt to remove dirt, grey a metaphor for the cityscape and silver for dreams, this palette is an expression of the sense of isolation inherent in Stormie’s work.
After establishing an international following for his iconic character based work that has seen him travel, work and show in London, Tokyo, Athens and Miami, Stormie now works full time on his practice, investigating humanity in his pursuit to understand what drives our deepest desires and emotions. With sold out shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth along with gallery representation in all three cities, Stormie’s career has continued to gain momentum.
With a career that spans over 25 years, Stormie continues to be sought out to create his work worldwide and remains true to his quest of examining what it is to be human through his thought provoking work.
