Student Spotlight: Karlioto Miller Espinosa

The National Conference of Arts Administrators, held this year on our campus and sponsored by our School of Art, was where I was first introduced to the thrilling work of conceptual street muralist and MFA student, Karlito Miller Espinosa. Miller’s work has been viewed worldwide including Russia, Ukraine, Switzerland, Philadelphia, New York. Currently immersed in a New Jersey commission, he shared some of the processes he employs for his large-scale wall pieces with the conference attendees. Miller’s strong preference is for developing and working from connections to location. His recent commission (2016) for the Art United Us mural project in Kiev, Ukraine stood out to me as a moving monument to the Ukranian people. The wall image is meant to convey their deep sadness in response to the attempted invasion by Russia.
