About WILF TILLEY

Wilf Tilley (Prof. Michael W. Miller) was born in the North of England and began his career as an actor, age 16, with the National Youth Theatre. “Wilf Tilley” (a combination of parental names) was part-adopted for a first solo exhibition at the AIR Gallery, London, when he was 27. He studied English and European Literature with Italian before a postgraduate degree at the Royal College of Art, and co-organized fundraising exhibitions for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and the anti-apartheid movement. An interest in the functional aspects of anatomical drawings by Leonardo da Vinci led, via study in the Open University, to research on neuronal modelling in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics in the University of Oxford. He was a Fellow of St. Catherine’s College, Oxford, and after a two-year Fellowship in the International Center for Medical Research, Kobe, was a founder member, then senior adviser at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute. While at the institute he designed and supervised installation of a brain science exploratorium: “BrainBox”.  Wilf was shortlisted, in 2015, for the Impress Prize for New Writers for his novel, The LadyBoy Murders. Recent work, aside from portraiture, explores the arts of memory and fabulation.
