ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jimmy Millan is a Spanish Andalusian artist who lives and works in Madrid. He comes from a family of artists, which is why he has been surrounded by art throughout his life. He has collaborated with major fashion publications such as Vogue, Vanidad Magazine and DoubleView. He has also collaborated with fashion brands and fashion designers such as como Owl Now or Never, Live Heros, Don Pascual, Clothing, among others.
Through the collage technique, minimalistic strokes and a reduced number of colors, the artist recreates his perception of reality. Through patience and reflection, Jimmy tries to capture the emotions of the characters he portrays. Over time, the artist has gradually depurated reality to perceive it from an almost abstract perspective, focusing on those parts or features that he considers relevant and produce specific emotions. Our encounter with people throughout our lives often leaves a memory that is not only visual but also emotional. Jimmy focuses on this last part to reproduce these emotions left by those who we once met.
Artig Gallery presents a series of unique collages created by Jimmy made in paper and acrylic paint on paper and on DM board (Medium-density wooden fibreboard), signed by the artist and come with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.

IN MY OWN WORDS
"Since I was a child I always had a different way of looking at everything around me, either memorable or insignificant, and little by little I developed a profound desire to show others the way I see things. I am inspired by the beautiful and the “ugly”, the extraordinary and the routine ... when I walk down the street I always look at everything from the ground to the sky, you never know where a source of inspiration may come from, and I do not want to miss it! My works reflect traces of everything that surrounds me, seen through my eyes, with energy and passion, life is short and one has to fill it with emotion. "

EDUCATION
I am self-taught, but I have not taught myself, I have learned through observing others, living and traveling. In my father I found the ideal teacher, outside the regular system of education, learning by trial and error and the implementation of things. I learn from everything. Maybe, by not attending an official art school, it took me a little longer to learn, but maybe that is also why I have been fortunate to not have barriers in exploring techniques and experience.
