Quirky wit and a hip style make the artwork of Frank Harris enjoyable. Depicting people and animals in whimsical and fantastical situations is the essence of the artist's work. Harris draws his inspiration from mythology, comic books and modern art. His bright colors and lyrical sense of design infuses the work with life and his distinctive point of view. Frank Harris studied painting and drawing at Carnegie-Mellon University, graduating with a BFA in fine arts in 1982.
