  • Artist Story
  • Ashvin Harrison creates art that visually speaks of his personal beliefs and nature. As a result of experiences in life and an obsession with the contrasts of life and death through his interested in the philosophies on existentialism, he flow towards visual representations of thoughts and motivations to create art. Ashvin Harrison mainly creates high contrast photorealism nude, realistic figurative expressionism portraits and expressive realism nature art pieces. Most commonly he uses charcoal as this dark natural substance reminds him of the positive beauty that can be found in bringing a cold, dark and dead material back to a representation of beautiful life- helping to make sense of my existence and purpose for such. He uses colour as an expression of emotion, life or movement. How he feels day to day impacts the use of colour, technique and subject. Education Ashvin Harrison is a self taught artist. He dropped out of school, but now has a few unrelated certificates and a bachelors degree Before becoming a full-time artist in 2017, he worked in 30 different fields, jumping from job to job "I've worked as a teacher, child safety investigation officer, Google Maps tech, cabinet maker, apprentice chef, training hairdresser, cleaner and musician to name a few. I guess I get bored easily."
