Josh Harrier is a contemporary abstract artist who explores the depths of color and imagination. He lives and works out of his studio in Denver, Colorado. Working in oil and acrylic on canvas, Josh adopts a purposeful approach throughout his creative process.
Music has been the primary influence in his art and a constant source of inspiration. With an ever-changing stack of vinyl albums on the record player, he paints multiple pieces simultaneously of considerable scale and complexity. Melody lines and rhythm guide his artistic direction, from calculated and controlled to free and expressive.
Designs learned in leather tooling—specifically, the shapes and curves created with a swivel knife—made a lasting impression on Josh at an early age. He reflects on the feeling and the fluid motion of carving as a pivotal moment in his art. Similar patterns are often represented in his work today.
