These complex and interesting creations portray the essence of human nature and emotion in a style that combines techniques of traditional fine art with hints of urban flare and chaos. Mills refers to his pieces as painting disasters which seem to come to life with the creative digital manipulation combining techniques that would otherwise be difficult to put together.
