Born in 1934 in Omaha, Nebraska, Jay Milder is an American artist and a figurative expressionist painter of the second generation New York School.
His work explores Old Testament themes such as Jacob’s Ladder and Noah’s ark, and the esoteric mystical beliefs of the Kabbalah.
Jay’s work is included in the collection of many national and international museums. He has been the subject of two, recent retrospectives in Brazil in 2007 at the National Museum Brasilia and, in 2006, at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro. He is renowned in Sao Paulo, one of the major international centers for street and public art, as a seminal influence on graffiti artists.
He has an upcoming show at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, which runs from September 13, 2019-November 10, 2019.
