Miles Howard-Wilks

Miles Howard-Wilks is a multi disciplinary artist, specialising in painting, ceramics, photography and digital art. Thematically his practice is distinctly Australian, featuring landscapes and seascapes with recurring motifs of iconic animals, landmarks and transport. While the imagery in 2D work often combines several themes in one complex vision, Howard-Wilks is singular in his focus, creating detailed compositions featuring trams, magpies and reptiles and their eggs and bones with character and elegance. Miles Howard-Wilks has worked in the studio at Arts Project Australia since 2000. Solo exhibitions include Sharks and Everything, Arts Project Australia Gallery, Melbourne, 2004; and My solo with a magpie in it, West Space, Melbourne, 2015.
