British Artist Alan Harris developed a unique style. Using his skill in modeling with an intuitive way of building up figures is quite unique, a talent that allows him to develop this sculptural technique inspired by Brutalism a style that rather than being easy on the eye it is more antagonistic, applied to sculpture added a confrontational rawness to it, that perfectly integrate into modern design.

About the artist

Alan Harris, British artist was born in 1954 in London, in the post-war era. 

Growing up in a city full of marks left by World War 2 Alan has been influenced by those images that he depicts in many of his early works. 
The initial work of this artist is deeply influenced by the postwar images where his father participated and left indelible marks in his memory and in his painting. Empty, dark streets, with semi-dilapidated buildings and stray cats roaming the streets, were the first characteristics of his paintings.

In his late work,  he evolves to more modern images where traffic and bustle, lights and people appear in his paintings giving life and showing the change that globalization has brought and the growth of the world economy.

Always with a great sense of architectural space, Alan has managed to paint in his work a unique concept that stands out from his contemporaries. His ability to abstract the main elements of each city and create that image with which the public easily connects and which is part of their own experience is unique.
