Did you know?

Miller's art began to attract attention in Japan shortly before his untimely death.


Miller belonged to a generation of postmodern artists inspired by cartoons and graffiti. Untitled, which features a male figure floating amid viscera and accompanied by animals, suggests vulnerability and mortality, and the concept of one’s place in the universe. The artist’s imagery during this period likely references his identity as a gay man living through the deadliest years of the AIDS pandemic.
