Born in Chelmsford in 1984, Greg Harris spent his childhood growing up in Essex, Suffolk and West Sussex before going to Leicester to complete a BA in Fine Art degree at De Montfort University in 2009. After taking a break from art and travelling to the Far East, Greg threw himself back into painting and has never looked back. In his paintings, Greg wants you to reconnect with the familiar by bringing together both a literal and non-literal interpretation of the people and environment around you.
What we love about Greg
Greg’s painterly style brings together eclectic color combinations, which yield equally bold portraits named “and” or “the singers.” Reflecting on his precise attention to composition and choice of color, remarkably his thick brush strokes evoke faces, which are haunting and realistic, yet sometimes culturally ambiguous. Our collective humanity unassigned.
