Milan Tiff
The State of America

2020

About the Item

This contemporary political painting, The State of America, is a social critique of America and racism. Los Angeles-based Milan Tiff addresses issues of systemic oppression, history, racism and social justice in flat, bright, contrasting red, white, blue and black, drawing on conventions from diverse traditions from colorful pop art to geometric abstraction and color field painting. This painting features an American flag, the classic stars and bars, peeling back to reveal the corner of a Confederate battle flag. Milan Tiff The State of America 48 x 48 inches Hand-signed by artist Artist's signature, artwork title and date on back of canvas Milan Tiff was born in 1949 in Shaker Heights, Ohio and studied at The Cleveland Institute of Art, Miami University of Ohio, and UCLA. Tiff was severely disabled due to Polio until the age of ten but eventually trained to become an international champion track and field Hall of Fame athlete earning several national and international medals and world record titles. Influenced by his artistic family, Tiff relied on art as a way to cope with his disability during his youth and continued his art practice through his athletic career to the present. His experience studying medical illustration and art restoration influenced his masterful style of painting hard lines and edges with surgical precision and using just the right paint-to-water ratio to achieve the beautifully smooth quality in each of his pieces. Milan’s semi-abstract paintings are collected privately worldwide. This painting of the The State of America was created in 2020. keywords: Los Angeles artist, California painters, racial justice, social justice, monochrome, color field background, bright colors, social critique of america painting, American flag, confederate flag, Contemporary Political Square Painting in Red White + Blue
