About the Artist
With his masterful use of simple geometric shapes, patterns, and vivid colors, wildlife artist Charley Harper distilled the essence of each bird, bug, otter, or elephant he painted to its most important details. Harper, whose whimsical paintings portraying all kinds of creatures have delighted art and animal lovers for more than six decades, developed his unique "minimal realist" style while a student at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and the Art Students League in New York City.
The 30 exuberant avian portraits by Charley Harper in this book of postcards—from chickadees and cardinals to pelicans and puffins—perfectly capture the subjects' personalities.
