Artist of the day: Serena Mitnik-Miller

Monday, September 7, 2009 · No Comments

Serena Mitnik-Miller is a San Francisco-based artist who draws a lot of inspiration from her home near the ocean. This summer Serena was in Pipeline: Art, Surfing, and the Ocean Environment at SFMOMA. Mitnik-Miller’s paintings distill the purity and organic nature of her subject. She uses abstractions and geometric shapes to portray the water, and the effect is beautiful and utterly calming.

Besides the show at SFMOMA, Serena also showed in and curated the Ocean + Beach show at Needles and Pens this summer, which also showcased artists who live in beach communities and are inspired by life near the water.  

If Mitnik-Miller’s paintings and curating is not impressive enough, she is also a very talented skateboard and surfboard artist.
