Juan and art

Juan Mills

Juan Mills, 17, is a Madison artist who likes to 'dream big'. His passion for art was inspired at a young age by teacher turned mentor, local artist, Shane Quella. At 11, Juan began showing his art as a part of Gallery Night in Madison, and at 15, earned solo shows at Art & Sons and the Memorial Union. His work often consists of large-scale faces and detailed designs, working quickly while using bold colors. Juan's tools of choice are spray paints, acrylics, paint pens, oil pastels and krink markers. While he has dyslexia and learning disabilities that make reading and writing difficult, they also contribute to Juan's creative and artistic side, generating even more passion for his work. His influences include Stephan Matioc, Keith Herring, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Pablo Picasso.
