Joe is an artist using textiles, print, light and movement.
Joe Mills is an artist using textiles, print, light, and movement to make joyous, colourful work from nature-based research, rooted in fairytale imagery, TV and high fashion.
He has an inventive and experimental approach, evident in his creation of VA Collective event, FLORA VICTORIOUS, a dreamy multi-textured piece in which Joe worked together with artist Ruby Tingle as performers. This was invited to reprise at the opening of Venice Biennale 2022 as part of the PROFORMA Pavillion.
In 2021 Joe collaborated with artist Daisy McClay at Manchester School of Art for eight weeks, to design and create a banner, using the University’s printing facilities. The resulting work, Awesome Rainbow Sunshine Grooving Moving People, was exhibited at People’s History Museum in the summer of 2022 in Until It Looks Like This.
Joe has also undertaken Cultural Enrichment Programmes during his time at Venture Arts, with both The Whitworth and The Royal Exchange Theatre.
