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 by joining a Leicester-based artist studio in 2012: since then, he’s never looked back. Greg has recently moved his studio to Bristol.
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. Greg achieves this through carefully considered colour combinations and a painterly style that doesn’t condemn what’s being depicted. Rather, through their execution and minimised mark-making, the paintings are brought to life with a clean and freshly finished feel.
