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.
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."
