Kenshin Miller is a Los Angeles-based oil painter.

In my work, order and chaos, light and dark are investigated and something new is uncovered in the process. My paintings are projected interior landscapes, perhaps, or the beautiful shape of a gesture recalled, or an alleyway from a dream emerges.

I’m a figurative artist, drawn to paint the natural world and its inhabitants, landscapes interrupted by human dissonance, by joy, laughter, and pain. It’s all too beautiful, and that’s what beckons. To me, to paint is to be alive, to make a discovery, to celebrate a knowing of the way things are as they arise and pass away all too quickly.
