Charley Harper was an American Modernist artist and illustrator based in Cincinnati, Ohio. After graduating from the Academy of Art in Cincinnati and receiving the school’s first Stephen H. Wilder Travelling Scholarship, Harper gained a reputation as a successful wildlife illustrator, tapped for nature-themed projects such as the Golden Book of Biology, the magazine Ford Times, and the National Parks Service. Harper developed a distinct personal style he described as “Minimal Realism”, capturing the forms of his subjects with the fewest possible visual details, often distilling them down to flat geometric shapes and stylized lines. Charley Harper’s work has been shown at the Kunstverein Hamburg in Germany, the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Altman Siegel Gallery in San Francisco, the Trifecta Gallery in Las Vegas, and the Public Trust in Dallas, TX, among other places.
