BiographY

Shane Miller is a Kansas City artist. His artistic style is classified as contemporary impressionism. The American Boy series displays this impressionism style with a dash of abstract and a pinch of realism, using rich vibrant acrylic colors. His inspiration comes from personal experiences, history of the United States, and present day trends.

Mr. Miller fortified his artistic principles during the first 12 years of school.  During college at CMSU his degree in Architectural Graphics sealed his fate for an artistic life direction.  

His art has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions including locations at Kansas City Union Station, Lenexa City Hall, Lee’s Summit City Hall, St. Luke’s South Hospital, UCM gallery, ArtsKC, Art Galleries, Art Fairs and other venues around the Kansas City area. He has commissioned private paintings and wall murals over the years and continues to display in multiple locations.

Mission statement

Provide sustainable luxury art for client’s acquisition.

A story is a suitable way to explain this statement.  A collector (Tom) who owns several of Shane's pieces was approached by a friend (Jerry) to sell one of his paintings in his collection. At first, Jerry inquired about the painting, Shane, and finally price. Jerry offered Tom twice purchase price. Blushed and honored Tom gracefully declined. Another offer from Jerry ensued, this time “triple” value, cash in hand. Tom said, in a serious tone, the painting is not for sale at any cost, in perpetuity.

Tom likes the painting for his personal viewing no doubt.  In addition he has firsthand proof of the paintings increased value. Moreover, the art has become more of a trophy on display, and its story along with it, in which the room will be decorated around, versus art that fits in the room. 

Art is a luxury item. But not all luxury last forever, this art is one that does; as Tom now understands fully. As Mr. Miller continues in his career his value goes up and so will his art, this is sustainability. Clients do not simply buy his paintings, like a store purchase. They watch it, chase it, and capture it like a treasure hunt, which is an acquisition.
