Miles Howard-Wilks
Transport Paintings, 2019

Commissioned by Metro Tunnel Creative Program

Curator - Global Art Projects

Franklin Street, Melbourne, 2019 (hoarding State Library Station construction site)


These artworks of reimagined landscapes selected for the Metro Tunnel Creative Program are typical of Miles Howard-Wilks' art practice. An avid public transport user and a keen observer and lover of Melbourne, public transport and magpies, Miles has created a series of slightly surreal landscapes that pay homage to Australian flora and fauna as well as Victorian landmarks and infrastructure. After travelling by train, tram or on foot, Miles returns to the studio and paints his land and seascapes from memory.
