Miles Neidinger was born in July of 1976 in Kansas City, MO. He graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2000 with a BFA in sculpture. Artist residencies include Studios INC in 2014 and Vermont Studio Center in 2001.
Neidinger has worked in the commercial and industrial electrical industry since 2001. His artistic visualization has been informed by his experience in the workplace. As an electrician he has found real life functions for color-coding, tape, conduit bending, and installations, the utilization of trigonometry, algebraic equations, and geometric functions. All these experiences have drastically informed his artistic practices and continue to do so.
Some of his recent exhibitions include: “UrbanSuburban XI” at the Epsten Gallery in Overland Park, KS, “The Lexicon of Propositions” at the Springfield Art Museum, “(Re)Imagine, at Epsten Gallery in Overland Park, Kansas, “The Anatomy of the Palace of Wisdom” at City Ice Arts in Kansas City MO, “Art in the Prow” presented by Sprint at the Flatiron Building in NYC, “Museum Interrupted” at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Overland Park KS., “An Associate Degree in Science” at the Finch Gallery in Chicago Ill., “What’s the Matter with Kansas” at the Rare Gallery in New York, NY, “Family Event home for the Holidays” at Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, Charlotte Street Fund Awards Exhibition at JCCC in Overland Park KS.
Neidinger was recently selected to be an artist in residence at Studios INC.

His work has been published in Art in America, The Kansas City Star, Review Magazine, and Pitch Weekly.
