Born in Corning, New York artist Kevin Harrison left the states with his Peace Corp parents and spent his early years growing up in Malaysia, Singapore and Australia.
For the past 5 years he has been traveling around the world with his wife and two daughters. In 2012 they moved to Barcelona, Spain and in 2014 they moved to Dublin, Ireland. He continued to work on painting commissions for collectors from Spain, Ireland, Quatar, France, England and the US while editing on several Feature Film EPK projects. In September of 2016 their family returned home to the US and since then he has been working for a variety of clients. He moved to Charleston, South Carolina in 1997 and quickly made a name for himself in the art world.
Known for his contemporary urban style, Harrison draws inspiration from architectural design, abstract landscapes, iconic street scenes, saturated color and abstract imagery.
"I find myself drawn toward images of street scenes, jazz clubs, night owls and extreme detail, such as cracks in the sidewalk. I love depicting the buildings as if they are leaning over, looking down and watching us as we walk these century-old streets; they are like the elders who have seen it all and we are the tourists, temporarily passing through their city."
