Elli and John Milan are a collaborative pair of artists working together in mixed mediums. They enrolled at Savannah College of Art and Design and later transferred to the University of Georgia where they received their BFA in painting. It was in this small, but vital city, that the couple developed personal styles and began showing their work in local galleries. After graduation the couple worked independently, but began dreaming about working together.
Today, they live their dream, and the Milans create their paintings together. Although Elli and John are both accomplished artists on their own, this collaboration brings out a side of their work that neither could reach by themselves. The joint work is aggressive and spontaneous layers of paint, which create a bright and playful scenario that is interwoven with hints of narrative.
