"Michael Scott Miller was born in Boston, Massachusetts. He developed a body of large-scale abstract work at NMSU and received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1995. During his time there, his interests expanded and his foundation in abstraction began to lean toward the figurative as he became immersed in the verticality of the city. His work was shown in galleries in New York and Los Angeles and The Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art in Charlotte, North Carolina. as well as at art fairs in LA, Miami and London.
In 2009, Miller was awarded an MTA Arts in Transit commission for the Beach 90 subway station in Far Rockaway, Queens. The five surfing-inspired paintings he made for the project were transformed into faceted glass and “Surf Station 90” was installed in early 2012. Miller continues to live and work in Brooklyn, New York."
