Notes: A flow is always present in Drew Harris’ piece. When he paints, Drew’s main concern is to have complete connection to the work, but he says, “My work has for a number of years, related to elements seen in weather.” As for any profound message, Drew doesn’t think he intentionally starts out with any high-minded artist statement but rather, it is a feeling that develops. As seen in this piece, a collage of elements and subject matters tied into one brings about unity, flow and harmony – it beckons to the viewer. Toronto-born abstract artist Drew Harris, 56, has been living in Kuala Lumpur and Penang for the past two decades and has been exhibiting periodically over the years. The Malaysian-based Canadian studied graphic design and ne arts for six years at college and started his career as a graphic designer in Toronto. In the mid-80s, he realised that he was making more money from his paintings than graphic designs and decided to take the plunge to become a full-time artist. Drew Harris received his formal education in design and ne arts at Georgian College of Applied Arts in Ontario Canada, 1979- 1982, receiving the Ontario Premiere’s Award for most outstanding student of design in Ontario.Drew began his professional career in Toronto Canada as Senior Design Director for Communique Ltd, Canada’s leading corporate communications company specializing in motivational seminars and speakers, corporate identity design and corporate video presentations. In 1991, after 6 years with Communique, Harris began his career as a full time visual artist exhibiting his abstract paintings nationally and throughout the world and in such cities as Toronto, Chicago, New York, Vancouver, Melbourne, Jakarta, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
