John & Elli Milan

 

BIOGRAPHY:

After meeting in Hawaii the husband and wife team, John and Elli Milan, enrolled at Savannah College of Art and Design and later transferred to the University of Georgia where they received their BFA in painting in 1996. It was in this small, but vital city, that the couple developed personal styles and began showing their work in local galleries.

The husband and wife team have been married for 21 years and have been collaborating on the same canvases for 12. As they traverse the creative process hand in hand, they overcome their struggles and push through creative barriers to discover new horizons. Their work depicts a dialogue between husband and wife, soul and spirit, and heaven and earth.

John and Elli Milan have sold their work through galleries and art consultants throughout the US and Europe, and their artwork can be found in private collections all over the world. But finding their own success has only made them want to help others live out their dreams as successful professional artists. While they continue to build their own careers, they opened the Milan Art Institute in 2010 where the couple personally works with 12 artists per year, teaching them techniques and skills, helping them find their voice and develop their style.
