Charley Harper

Charley Harper loved animals and nature but was quick to remind folks that he was an artist, not a naturalist: "I think flat, simple, and funny." In a style he called "minimal realism," Harper used geometric shapes, patterns, and vivid colors to simplify nature's complexities and bring out each critter's personality. With the cheeky tail end of a deer or the chubby cheeks of a squirrel snacking at a birdfeeder, Harper's artwork makes viewers smile.
