Toronto born painter Brian Harvey studied at The Art Centre at Central Technical School, Toronto School of Art, and received a BFA from OCAD University in 2016. Upon graduating from The Art Centre in 2003, Harvey focused on building an oil painting practice and within a few years he began working full time as an artist. He has been painting for two decades and his work has been widely collected across Canada, the United States and beyond. He is inspired by the commonplace and the typically mundane; the everyday objects, spaces and landscapes that surround him. He strives to explore and monumentalize these overlooked and forgotten pockets of Toronto’s urban landscape.
