Brian Harvey explores the forgotten pockets of Toronto’s urban landscape through bold and colourful paintings in oil. He studied painting at The Art Center at Central Technical School and received a BFA in Drawing and Painting from OCADU. He has been painting and exhibiting for almost two decades and his work can be found in public and private collections across Canada, the United States and Europe.

"Painting allows me the opportunity to look at things that are frequently overlooked. I am drawn to the banality of the everyday objects and spaces that surround me. I have a strong response to things which are connected to the past, holdovers which are often ignored or forgotten about altogether."
