Harland Miller is a British artist and author who is best known for his large-scale, Photorealist paintings of vintage Penguin book covers. A critically acclaimed novelist as well as an influential painter, his practice explores the combination of image and text, similar in scope to American artist Ed Ruscha. “There's always been this compunction to write on pictures,” he has observed. The covers he paints often feature his own invented, sardonic titles combined with the iconic Penguin logo. His muted tones and painterly brushstrokes imbue his canvases with the worn character of a used book, yet nevertheless manage to convey a contemporary, subversive sociopolitical critique. Born in 1964 in Yorkshire, England, Miller received both his BA and MA from the Chelsea College of Art in London, where he currently lives and works.
