Devin Miles was born 12 May, 1961 in North Rhine-Westphalia and now lives near Hamburg with his wife and three children. After completing training as a craftsman and working in the creative sector using different techniques and materials, he began focusing exclusively on art in 2001, first working on canvas. He carefully studied the creative principles and techniques of Pop Art and the works of Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Tom Wesselmann, developing his own methods of paint application, paintbrush techniques, airbrushing and silkscreening. His love for experimentation and search for new creative outlets eventually led Devin Miles to his discovery of aluminium plates as a painting surface. The different sized plates are hand-brushed and painted and printed on using durable, lightfast paint.
