Kevin Harris a screen-printer, watercolorist, photographer, textile designer and cutter of paper based in Berkeley, California. His prints are often pattern-based, focusing on overlapping, transparent color layers, textural surfaces, and forms. Kevin loves to construct shapes, and to imagine what the shapes may represent.  As he draws (or cuts) these designs Kevin feels the structure between their inner and outer space as well as the balance between graceful and blunt areas. The impact a shape has endured is expressed with textural marks that expose its surface, and elemental story.

Kevin Harris holds a BFA from Alfred University where he studied ceramic sculpture and lithographic printmaking. In addition to work on paper Kevin Harris produces textile designs, printed fabric, and silk scarves, which he sells in museum stores, and galleries nationally. His most recent exhibitions include watercolor paintings in the Limbic Songs exhibition, at the Real Eyes Gallery, in Adams, MA, a lithograph for the De / Composition show at Main Street Gallery, in Clifton Springs, NY, and a screen print for the Bay Area Print 2019 juried exhibition, at the Compound Gallery, in Oakland, CA.
