Jeff McMillan is an American artist based in London. Born in Lubbock, Texas in 1968, he received a BFA from Texas Tech University (1991) and an MFA at the University of Alabama (1995) before moving to the U.K in 1998.

He has exhibited in the UK and internationally, including recently in group exhibitions at Kristof de Clerq Gallery, Ghent and at Large Glass, London (both 2017) and a solo show at Handel Street Projects, London in 2016.
Other group exhibitions include Found, The Foundling Museum, London (2016); ABJAD, Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh (2015); Summer Exhibition, Royal Academy, London (2014); six memos for the next…, Magazin4 Bregenzer Kunstverein, Bregenz (2013); The Curator's Egg, Altera Pars, Anthony Reynolds Gallery, London (2012); Boule to Braid: Curated by Richard Wentworth, Lisson Gallery, London (2009); and the John Moores Painting Prize (2002, 2004, 2006).
As a curator he created and ran the project space PEARL from 2001-2004 and has since organised a number of exhibitions including the abstract drawing show Tell it Slant at Frith Street Gallery, London (2016) and I AR YOU: Portraits by Self-Taught American Artists at Large Glass, London (2013).
