Miles Regisis a self-taught fine artist whose work is reminiscent of master painters. His art taps into the emotions of the exotic cultures of the world and adopts them in a proud and authoritative manner. He has kept that inner, explorative imagination of his mind saturated with notions, ideas and images reflective of a world filled with conflicting interests. Miles is an artist with a strong message that speaks through his powerful works.
Miles’ work was recently featured on CNN’s African Voices program, where Isaiah Washington showcased Miles’ art at the artist’s home and spoke highly of some of his favorite Miles Regis pieces. Miles’ powerful work is provides thought provoking dialogue to which many notable art lovers - the likes of Isaiah Washington, Nicollette Sheridan, Ron Perlman, and others - are now paying attention.
His most recent showing was at a private event in November that featured live painting with works created for his new project COLOR COMBUSTION as well as a piece specifically for donation to the NextAid World AIDS Day event which was held December 1st at the Marrakesh House in Culver City, CA. This private event paint party was also filmed for a documentary that is currently underway chronicling Miles’ artistic journey and his resulting powerful works.
Miles’ previous solo exhibit was in June 2009 at CCH Pounder's Pounder-Kone Gallery in Los Angeles. His WE LIVE FOR WHO WE DIE FOR showing was a beautifully poignant, new chapter in his evolution as an artist, where he showcased his ability to create extremely relevant, thought-provoking images that ask questions like "WHERE DO YOU STAND?" at a time when contemplation, introspection and self evaluation is necessary. One of the paintings from ‘WL4WWD4’ was recently installed at one of Senegal’s most notable museums, La Musee Borindar.
Upcoming showings include his 3rd annual participation in The Santa Monica Museum of Art’s INCOGNITO show; the�launch of a new body of art work coupled with the debut of his art inspired clothing line at American Rag Cie; and his participation in MANIFEST EQUALITY which gathers together a diverse array of hundreds of the nation’s most talented visual artists under one roof to demand full and equal rights for all Americans.
