ABOUT THE ARTIST: Josh Harrier (www.joshharrier.com) is a contemporary abstract artist who explores the depths of color and imagination. He lives and works out of his¬†studio in Denver, Colorado. Working in oil and acrylic on canvas, Josh adopts a purposeful approach throughout his creative process.
Music has been the primary influence in his art and a constant source of inspiration. With an ever-changing stack of vinyl albums¬†on the record player, he paints multiple pieces simultaneously of considerable scale and complexity. Melody lines and rhythm¬†guide his artistic direction, from calculated and controlled to free and expressive.
Colorado Bluebird Sky¬†was featured as a visual projection in the lighting show of renowned band,¬†The String Cheese Incident, on¬†their concert tour in 2012-2013. Venues included Red Rocks Amphitheater (Morrison, CO), The Greek Theater (Berkeley, CA), and¬†many esteemed venues throughout the US.
The band was honored to use one of Josh‚Äôs¬†favorite paintings¬†as the cover art for their 2014 album,¬†Song In My Head.
