ABOUT copy 2.png

The Artist

With an affinity for occult stories, an obsession with horror movies and a love of doom and death metal music, and (of course) Krampus, Ken Miller has spent three decades experimenting with tenebrism and chiaroscuro. While devoid of color, his illustrations are not bereft of feeling as they express a conflict between the real and the abstract. Monochromatic tones are softly blended over textural foundation created with a coarse application of medium. Ken Miller has a BFA from the University of the Arts, and resides in the mosquito-infested swamps of Tinicum, just southwest of Philadelphia.
