Description Santa Monica is the seventh in a series of digital photographic art prints that are for sale. Third Street is a pedestrian only place which allows for an urban place where you can linger, or shop, or dine, or listen to the many street musicians that are there daily. These two guitar playing musicians are there frequently and always draw a crowd. And since this is part of Los Angeles, where the music scene is rich and diverse, some of these musicians go on to some level of success and fame.

Gill Miller, Los Angeles Member Since November 2012 Artist Statement When Gill Miller thinks about his next painting, or about art in general, he is reminded of the artistic spirits and influences of Pollock, Rothko or Franz Kline. These artists have had a profound influence on him. “Pollock showed me how to trust my instincts and go with my gut feelings about art. I learned not to be afraid of the process, of the evolution of my craft.”
And now, several years after his first art show in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, CA, the evolution and the journey continues. Numerous art shows in Los Angeles and San Francisco, participation in an international art exhibition at the National Gallery in Naples, Italy in late summer 2014 and then moving to Los Angeles in 2015, his art as the pivotal point for an AFI short film titled, PASTE, and the inclusion in the May 2013 issue of Architectural Digest are some of the highlights of Gill’s career so far.
Starting with working on canvas with spray acrylic, which is Gill’s primary medium, he has branched out to creating digital collages, creating new compositions from his canvas art. These are available as giclee prints. This has also helped his canvas work evolve in a way that it might not have without the digital perspective.
This is a different era than when Pollock was alive and working. The struggle may be different. However, the beauty and the passion still has to come through.
