Miles Petrella is a Montreal-based makeup artist and multidisciplinary visual artist. He completed his makeup artistry  certificate at InterDec college in 2018. Since then, he has worked for clients such as Patrick Watson, Caveboy, backxwash and Legal Vertigo, as well doing commercial work for Fido. He also has experience in styling and visual merchandising.

In 2017 he received a BFA in Studio Art, along with a minor in Interdisciplinary Studies in Sexuality, at Concordia University.  He works mostly in installations, sculpture, painting and drawing, with influences in queer theory and mythology. Aiming to deconstruct aesthetics and formed identities, his work explores affect, the body (abject), and the relationship of binaries. His work has been featured as a part of Chromatic Festival in Montreal. He has also curated for Art Matters Festival and Pop Montreal in 2016.
