Stuart McAlpine Miller

Scottish-born artist Stuart McAlpine Miller, a Scottish Arts graduate, displays all the characteristics of his home nation – tenacity, determination and a wry sense of humour. Using subtle tones of oils on canvas McAlpine Miller creates the illusion of transparencies within his works. A reality that is so far-fetched that it becomes a busy blur of objects which portray the idea of an energy-laden consumer society. 


McAlpine Miller has enjoyed a popular following for in the U.K, New York and Hong Kong for his original paintings featuring trademark beautiful women overlaid with illusionary colourful nostalgic imagery. 

In 2011, McAlpine Miller was chosen as the artist in residence at The Savoy Hotel, London. His collection, entitled "A Time For Reflection" hangs in the iconic Thames Foyer.

The artist has enjoyed successful solo exhibitions with galleries such as Connaught Brown, London; Duncan Miller, London; Ruth O'Hara, New York; Catto Gallery, London; Rebecca Hossack Gallery,  Kings Road Gallery, London, SOTA Gallery, Hong Kong and Hoerle-Guggenheim, New York amongst others.


"All the things that David Hockney can do with an iPad in terms of colour, collaged composition and cut-and-paste layering, McAlpine Miller takes full circle by doing New School in an Old School style all, incredibly, with his oil paints! McAlpine Miller is taking Hockney a step further, by taking it a step backwards. Being far more complex, with traditional oil paints. His paintings have a 3D look about them. Seemingly composed through the employment of graphical cropped images edited under a CGI mouse-move, but it is all done with his sable paintbrush not the magic wand of Photoshop. With this, he paints pictures that connect with you, today. McAlpine Miller is one of the best artists of our time, painting about our time, in the best way I’ve seen. This is how he is changing the course of Art History – much in the same way that Da Vinci, Monet and Picasso did. The art of tomorrow starts here..." Estelle Lovatt, Art Critic
