Born 1969; Colwyn Bay, North Wales

Stormie Mills started painting in 1984, when on a dark, wet night he ventured out into the streetscape to make his first mark on the world. This ‘night school’ fueled an almost consuming passion that Stormie has followed relentlessly, chasing a dream to have his voice heard through his art.

It’s a vision he never lost sight of despite the adversities that came his way, from the unwanted attention his early artistic endeavors created, to being dislocated from his family and homeless.

More than 25 years later, Stormie has carved a distinctive niche that’s seen him sited in a global context as a highly collectable contemporary artist, receiving international acclaim for his unique style of work and segue from the somewhat traditional forms of graffiti writing.

Stormie’s career as a visual artist has taken him around the world. He’s been invited to the prestigious Miami Art Basel three times, including the exhibition of a self-portrait piece. He’s produced large scale commissions and exhibitions in Barcelona, throughout Greece, London, Los Angeles, Miami, Tokyo, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. In 2002, Stormie achieved international acclaim and exposure when he was invited to create murals across Greece in preparation for the Athens Olympics.

After presenting sell out solo exhibitions across Australia, in 2010 Stormie held solo shows in Sydney and Perth which continued his theme of examining the fragility of life. He was also invited to take part in a group show, On The Wall, in Melbourne, exhibiting his work alongside Banksy and the world’s leading street artists.

Motivated by the notion of isolation and loneliness, Stormie’s work depicts the human condition and the constant struggle to find personal identity within society’s confines.

Working predominately in a palette of silver (dreams), grey (concrete), black (dirt) and white (the removal of dirt), he creates evocative characters as an expression of emotion and observation.

As well as presenting work in some of the world’s most prestigious galleries, some works of art are more temporary and fleeting. In 2009, Stormie was among six leading artists who travelled to Scotland to transform an abandoned village.

Over four days the artists worked in miserable, cold and wet conditions to decorate the grey walls of the ghost village. A short film was made documenting the project and was screened to critical acclaim at the London Film Festival, ahead of the town’s looming demolition.

Away from canvases and blank walls, Stormie has also produced a limited edition toy which was retailed in Tokyo and New York and has since become a highly collectable piece.

In 2005 he traveled to London to participate in a show to launch the Thames and Hudson publication “Graffiti World”. During the visit, he was invited to be the guest speaker at the Museum of Contemporary Art, London.

Stormie’s work is a deeply personal expression of emotion. It’s captured in the layers of his paintings which have been created through his intense observations of the texture of life to engage and challenge the viewer to explore beyond the surface to find real beauty amidst the decay.

He has established a strong following for his work across a broad sector of the market, continuing to attract collectors for his unique statements on life.
