Inspired by urban and conceptual art, with references to pop art and culture.
RON MILLER is a Berlin-based artist duo made of Ronny Kindt and Marcus Klüh. Best friends, both artists are self-taught. Active in the scene since 2016, they share the same roots in pop art and urban culture. What defines RON MILLER is their unique approach to making art as a duo and the resulting artistic language that is born out of a harmonious synergy between the two; though Ronny and Marcus often work from completely opposite start-points.
RON MILLER’s work often concerns itself with the challenges we face as a global community. Recently, the artists have expanded their visual language to create 2D and 3D works, incorporating original sculptures, mechanisms, and found objects into their installations. RON MILLER’s iconic Geisha figure plays a major role in most of their works, representing the ever-changing dynamic nature of contemporary notions of identity. The motto ‘FUCK FAME’ is used, often with a hint of irony and some provocation, pointing out the paradoxical nature of the concepts behind fame, popularity and influence in the era of neo-liberalism, commodification and digitalization of art and culture. Not to mention the never-ending, trend-setting activities on social media.
Geisha plays a major role in most of the works, representing this post-modern cosmopolitan urban figure with various identities, depending on the context and situation.They evolved to stay the concept of her being limited and even prohibited to self-express her uniqueness and individuality, in contract to the obsession with self-expression and individuality in the West. Currently, the Geisha character is more of a trademark, a feature that they use to create recognition of their work.
