WHO

William Milo is an English born artist (currently in New Zealand) that has work in many private collections throughout the world. A contemporary artist with a distinctive drawing and creative style, combining handwritten, humorous text within well-crafted, funky frames that are an artwork themselves. 

 

Milo’s work documents a range of honest everyday commentaries, from satirical personal observations to well known phrases. When these phrases are placed on their own they are almost comical and can reflect the compulsive habits of an eavesdropper shouting out loud. The typical rendered texts are usually deadpan/sassy in their humour and reveal chance utterings like snippets of over-heard conversations or internal thoughts. Recurring themes pervade Milo’s storytelling, some with a view from a queer world reading and others from a critical artworld. They reflect the frustration and pettiness of everything. Making flat compositions that take on the inconsequential, the bizarre, and the disquieting elements of everyday life. 

 

The frames that Milo makes to complete the work add another layer and focus more on the ‘art practice’ allowing a viewer to almost see two artworks collide and become one. The frames are exemplary of Milo’s practice as the finished product is as important as the idea that feeds it.
