Brian Harvey was born in 1978 in Toronto, Canada. After studying digital media and animation his interest shifted to drawing and painting. He has studied art at Seneca College, Sheridan College, Toronto School of Art, the Art Centre at Central Technical School, and OCAD University in Toronto, and his work can be found in public and private collections across Canada and the United States.  His paintings are studies of the commonplace and the typically mundane; everyday objects, spaces and urban landscapes which are frequently overlooked.  Brian lives and works in Toronto.

“Painting allows me the opportunity to look at things that are frequently overlooked. I am drawn to the character of everyday objects and spaces, and the urban landscape in which I live. I have a strong response to things which are connected to the past, holdovers which are often ignored or forgotten about altogether. Through painting I am afforded the time to seek out and look at these things before they are gone.”

“In this ongoing body of work I seek to explore the character of the contemporary urban landscape through painting.  The layers of organic and geometric forms, patterns of colour and texture, lines of architecture, roads and hydro wires express a sense of place shaped by a history of urban transformation.   I am drawn to the spaces and structures which have served and survived generations but have become overlooked or entirely forgotten.  They are pieces of the urban narrative so often lost to time and “progress”.  Through a responsive and gestural application of material, my aim is to express the personality of these frequently disregarded historical facets, fixing them in time.”
