Ed Miliano was born in New York in 1954. He received a BFA in 1976 from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Miliano worked for over twenty-five years as a designer and illustrator in the USA and Ireland. His work is most often about nature and landscape. He will often group paintings together to create a larger, collective image. When viewed together, the separate paintings become an entirely new experience. In 2011, Miliano embarked on an ambitious project to paint his garden from the studio window every day for an entire year. He called this epic work, Diary, made up of 366 separate paintings. It was exhibited as part of the Futures 12 exhibition at the RHA in 2012. He has also been in several RHA Annual Exhibitions. Miliano has had two one-man exhibitions at the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin: Flower Paintings in 2004 and Paintings and Drawings from Dar es Salaam in 2011. Miliano’s work can be found in private and public collections including Office of Public Works, Dublin, Ireland, Department of Foreign Affairs, Ireland, National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, Dublin, Ireland, XL Group Plc, Dublin, Ireland, Bord na Gaeilge, Dublin, Ireland, Opera Ireland and Joseph Walsh Studio, Kinsale, Co Cork, Ireland. He is currently based in Tokyo working in a studio at the Art Factory.
