Shelley Miller

Shelley Miller is a Montreal-based artist who works both in public spaces and works with the public, creating permanent commission artworks as well as ephemeral sugar murals and community-engagement projects.

Shelley has been working with sugar as a medium for nearly 18 years, using it to address ideas of taste, desire, consumer culture, excess and greed. Her work with sugar evolved to include murals that address the not-so-sweet history of sugar and its’ roots in slavery and colonization. She continues to use sugar as a material for its richness in cultural meaning, using sugar to address systems of power and corruption.

Since 2010, Shelley has expanded her love of street art and working site-specifically, to include permanent public art commissions to her repertoire.
