Wyatt Mills

Born in New York

Lives in Los Angeles, CA

BFA School of Visual Arts 2013


Wyatt Mills is an LA-based artist whose lusciously hued paintings splice form and still life with abstraction, instinct and energy. Depicting disjointed forms with patient and sumptuous care, Mills conjures scenes of delirious bacchanals punctuated by lucid moments of formal stillness. Body parts entwine with immaterial shapes, slithering from the security of knowledge to a celebration of intuition.  Like fever-dreams that seep into waking life, Mills’ paintings are vibrant oscillations between the outwardly observed and the deeply visceral.
