Paintings by Drew Harris are abstract expressions in style. They are deeply moving and are almost a spiritual experience. Although his painting portrays tranquility, they are very potent. He however, does not believe that an artist’s role is to deliver a message:
“Each of us have our own lives. It is not for me to tell you how to conduct your life. I am just showing a bit of my feelings through the paintings. If the viewer likes the painting, he will sense my feelings.”
Harris, who has exhibited widely, has his artworks in many private and corporate collections in Europe and Asia. His work has been showcased and sold in various international galleries around the world. His work can be found in Chicago, New York, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and Toronto.
His corporate collection includes; The Bank of Switzerland, Faulding Pharmaceuticals – Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai Investment Bank, Sun Life Insurance – Toronto, The Four Seasons Hotel – Las Vegas, The International Film Festival – Toronto, The Embassy of France – Indonesia, Variety Magazine-Sydney. Harris currently resides and maintains a working studio in Kuala Lumpur with his wife, artist and educator Sharifah Mazwari.
