Miles Johal is a self taught artist based in Cardiff. He is currently exploring abstract and contemporary styles focusing on the use vivid and vibrant colours and texture to create his dramatic abstract pieces. He creates from his studio in Cardiff, inspiration coming from his imagination and he allows each of his paintings to develop form as they are painted in a true abstract manner. As a teenager he was inspired by his uncle's collection of oil portraits and thus he began with the teachings of Bob Ross as his introduction to oil painting but after finding the constraints of realism painting too restricting he became captivated with the works of artists such as Simon Kenny, Chris Lyter and Tomas Hammer. Each of these artists tilting Miles towards exploring dynamic use of colour with loose abstract forms.
