Park West Gallery artist Michael Milkin was born in Kharkov, Ukraine, a city he describes as full of history and culture. Initially, Milkin was a student of architecture, later an art teacher and today, an artist whose collectors span the globe. He says that the opportunity to display his art on cruise ships has allowed him to reach a diverse audience that he wouldn’t have met otherwise.
In his work, Milkin concentrates on still lifes and landscapes, painting in brightly colored acrylics and oils with thick, dramatic brushwork. He is influenced by painters Cézanne, Manet and Vasiliev, and inspired by the country of Israel.

“You can look at a painting for a whole week and then never think about it again. You can also look at a painting for a second and think about it for the rest of your life.” —JOAN MIRO (April 20, 1893 – December 25, 1983)
Today marks the 118th birthday of Catalan artist Joan Miro, a man viewed by the art world and collectors as one of the most important artists of the 20th century, and the precursor for much of modern art.
(For an interactive timeline of the artist’s life and work, visit the Park West Gallery Joan Miro website »)
Now on view through September 11, Miro at Tate Modern is London’s first major retrospective of the artist’s works in nearly 50 years.
