Global Angel Wings Project

Colette Miller created ‘The Global Angel Wings Project’ in 2012 in the streets of Los Angeles ~ the City of Angels. They were painted to remind humanity that we are the angels of this earth. They are human size interactive public art, wings that people take photos with and thus become part of the artwork. The first pair was just street art but, the response was natural, immediate and spontaneous – from people of all sorts and backgrounds. Colette has painted wings globally in Europe, Asia, Kenya, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Dubai and many in the United States. Though some are commissioned and others gifted, the wings themselves are free to the world. Never owned by anyone, not even Colette, though they are of her provenance and her work.

my art is inspired by my heart...

My art is inspired by my heart, dreams, philosophies, memories, psychic or intuitive forces and color and movement. I never consider a painting finished until I reach a point of love for the piece, a certain wholeness and completeness; where nothing essentially nags at me, telling me it's not done. I believe successful art tends to invoke a type of meditation or mind travel .
