Harland Miller is a both a writer and an artist.
After living and exhibiting in New York, Berlin and New Orleans during the 80s and 90s, Miller achieved critical acclaim with his debut novel, 'Slow down Arthur, Stick to Thirty' (2000), the story of a kid who travels around northern England with a David Bowie impersonator.
In 2001 Miller produced a series of paintings based of the dust jackets of Penguin books.
By combining the motif inherent in the Penguin book, Miller found a way to marry aspects of Pop Art, abstraction and figurative painting at once, with his writer's love of text.
Miller continues to create work in this vein, expanding the book covers to include his own phrases, some hilarious and absurd, others with a lush melancholy.
Harland Miller lives in London
