CMC Q&A - Brett Harper on the Art and Activism of Charley Harper

Environmental activist, Charley Harper is an artist who bridges the gap between figurative and realistic painting styles, whether working by layering acrylic paints or embracing a printing method called silk screening, his hand is unmistakable. Silk screening, the layering of separately screened forms printed on top of each other to create a full image, is a production nightmare that often yields more mistakes than masterpieces.

For Charley Harper, the result are bold, colorful, and often whimsical prints.

During his career, Charley Harper has illustrated numerous books and magazines such as Ford Times Magazine, as well as posters and other works for American environmental organizations such as the National Park Service, the Cincinnati Nature Center, the Everglades National Park, and many more.

Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Toulouse

The Natural History Museum of Toulouse

150 years after its founding, the Museum again opened its doors in 2008 after remaining closed for 10 years while it was undergoing a complete redesign. Now reorganised to reflect the relationship between man, nature and environment, its aim is to be a knowledge sharing institution that imparts its own particular perspective while instilling a sense of wonder and delight in visitors.

The exhibition circuit is designed to arouse curiosity and awareness of the position we occupy on this planet and how we can stay in harmony with it.
