Keith Milow

Born 1945, London.

Studied at Camberwell School of Art (1962-67) and the Royal College of Art (1967-68).

He was awarded a Gregory Fellowship at the University of Leeds in 1970 and two years later a Harkness Fellowship in the USA. He lived in New York from 1980 to 2002 and Amsterdam from 2002 to 2014; he now lives in London.

Milow is a sculptor, painter and printmaker working in a minimalist abstract style in which he acknowledges an important influence from the art of Jasper Johns. He has often combined painting and sculpture in series of reliefs using symbols such as the cross or details of modern architecture, transforming these literal elements into elegant, abstract works, using a wide range of materials.

He was included in the ‘Young Contemporaries’ exhibition at the Tate Gallery in 1967 and thereafter has shown regularly in group and solo exhibitions in the UK, the USA and Europe. He is represented in public collections including the Tate Galleries; the Henry Moore Foundation, Hertfordshire; Leeds City Art Gallery; the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Guggenheim Museum, New York; Dallas Museum of Art; Denver Art Museum; National Gallery of Australia and the Montgomery Collection in the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest.
