Mila Posthums is a contemporary South African painter. Her impressionistic figural deptictions of men and women are often set in glamorous scenes: bars, clubs or cafés. The artist's work is infused with an air of Hopper-like melancholy - her impressionistic figural works are set in shallow spaces and often rendered with muted, earthy tones. Mila's application of paint is tactile: her brush strokes varying between sharp focus and blurred lines , with the underlying process often left visible in places.
In 2013, the artist was commissioned to create work for the permanent collection at the War Museum of the Boer Republic in Bloemfontein.
Posthumus currently lives and works in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
