Miles Partington was born and raised in Southampton, NY. He was quickly exposed to art and creativity through his family. In grade school he had an internship with sculptor William King, which continues to inspire his work. He continued his art education at Southampton High School, and afterwards he mainly developed his techniques on his own. After graduating from SUNY New Paltz in 2005 and some moving back and forth between coasts, Miles ended up back in Southampton. He enjoys the art community, past and present, and the beautiful scenery that the East End of Long Island contains. His work has been included in exhibitions at Art Space 98 and Ashawagh Hall in East Hampton and at Southampton Arts Center. Since 2012, he has exhibited with Tripoli Gallery and had his first solo exhibition with the gallery in 2018 titled Where, where is the town. In 2018, he began collaborating with the Montauk Oceans Institute with Tripoli Gallery, creating artwork for their yearly exhibitions. For their 2018 exhibit, Save the Right Whale, he painted a mural on the floor of the Montauk Oceans Institute representing the 450 North Atlantic Right Whales remaining at that time. A pop-up exhibition with Tripoli Gallery, Below the Storm, featured new sculptures alongside the Montauk Oceans Institute’s Laws Not Jaws exhibit in 2019. Image pictured: Sitting in the Morning.
