Piola Restaurant proudly presents Craig Anthony Miller’s second exhibition, “The Power of Sound,” a collection of musically inspired urban art with a tribal, and graffiti influence. From the streets of New York, which served as Craig’s first gallery, this soon to be king of the urban art world will be in residence at Piola Restaurant from Thursday July 12th through Tuesday September 4th. Meet the artist, Craig Anthony Miller, and enjoy the modern and chic atmosphere of Piola on opening night, Thursday, July 12th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm, as Piola celebrates the latest collection of CAM’s vivid work.
Initially influenced by stained glass art, CAM now employs his graphic art training and the street art dominating NY’s boroughs to provide a rich cultural diversity from which he draws much of his inspiration. CAM’s work is a time traveling exploration of far-reaching distant lands run by tribal warriors which morph stealthily into today’s urban landscape capturing moments of clarity amidst busy lives. The ongoing theme is the warrior known as the ‘Warrior Within,’ a symbol with which we can each identify. CAM’s appreciation for music helped to develop the Piola collection that features our inner warrior interacting with music, sound, and instruments.
CAM’s distinctive artwork was selected and featured on a 2003 Samuel Adams billboard advertisement in SoHo NYC and in the 2004 Pepsi Black History Commemorative Calendar. In 2005, he was installed into a continuous art exhibition at Pulse Recording Studios and at 311 Studio as part of the DUMBO Arts Festival. In September 2006, CAM had his first gallery exhibition at the Jazz Gallery in SoHo NYC. For 2007, CAM held his first international show at Proud Gallery (Camden) London, England, drawing in over 500 art enthusiasts. Learn more at www.craiganthonymiller.com.
