John Millei

John Millei was born in Los Angeles, where he still lives and works. He is currently part of the Fine Art Faculty at the Art Center College Of Design in Pasadena, California. One of the pioneers of the renewed abstract painterly movement in Los Angeles, he takes an integral contemporary approach to a mid century aesthetic.

Millei’s work can be best described as Abstract and Expressionistic; employing mainly secondary and tertiary colors in gestural strokes of thick paint. Alternating between organic and geometric shapes and designs, Millei’s work leaves the observer with a mixture of feelings, rather than perceivable images. His trademark of pairing painting with prose adds an extra element to observing his work.
