Miles Howard-Wilks is primarily a painter, and also works across ceramics, photography, and animation. He is dedicated to exploring Australian landscapes, seascapes, football (or, to be accurate Collingwood) as well as, more specifically, sharks, magpies, and trains. Often combining several themes into one complex narrative work, Howard-Wilks’ art practice contains otherworldly qualities. Miles Howard-Wilks (born 1979) has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 2000. Howard-Wilks presented his first solo exhibition 'Sharks and Everything’ at Arts Project Australia in 2004 and most recently ‘My solo with a magpie in it’ at West Space, Melbourne. He has been included in numerous group exhibitions including, Melbourne Art Fair, Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne and ‘Pearls of Arts Project Australia: The Stuart Purves Collection’, National touring exhibition (2007-2009). His work is held in collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney and private collections throughout Australia.
