About Ashvin Harrison
I started creating visual art in my spare time to express the beauty of existence as I see it each day. As many of you will relate, my life has been full of extreme positives and negatives and leads me to question why we exist. I find great interest in many philosophies on existence, particularly ‘existentialism’. This has shaped my views on life and what I consider to be a ‘purpose in life’.
After teaching myself to draw and paint in my spare time, I started using charcoal to create body shapes. This cold and dark substance reminds me of the possibilities in creating beauty and a representation of life from death (dead tree matter).
I now use charcoal in every art piece as a realistic representation of life. I recently started using acrylic colours to express the beauty of movement and emotion- almost to express how it feels to be alive.
For now, I create unique abstract / realistic / expressionistic art style pieces, using my own unique made up techniques. Being a self-taught artist, I’m always off on my own little winding and twisting dirt track as I seek to discover more ways to express life as I see it.
