Tiger Milner

b.1960

Tiger Milner is a fine artist, performance artist, graphic designer, display designer, and writer. The artist is currently developing a series of mixed media image transfers that are part collage, part print making, and part painting. The images are lifted from his controversial and ever popular videos that are xtube favorites and mainstay of his worldwide blog TigerMilner.com which is viewed by over 35,000 men per month.  The artist plans to use this audience to promote his position in support of Treatment as Prevention. 

The artist holds a Master of Fine Arts in Media Design from Full Sail University in Orlando FL and a Bachelor of Liberal Studies in Painting from Florida Gulf Coast University. He is currently working on adding video to the mix and is developing a new series of self portraits that border on pornography and detail what sexual obsessions led to his infection with HIV. He has three adopted children and a white Labrador Retriever named Pink.

The images relate to self-acceptance and the shedding of layers of false identity. Life is a process and self-acceptance is as well. If we are lucky, we achieve it. Otherwise, deception creates walls that prevent us from knowing our true selves or each other. Metaphorically, these images reveal that process and capture the sense of relief that comes with acknowledging, and ultimately loving, the person we were created to be.
