Hard Plastic Tumbler with Straw
Charley Harper (August 4, 1922-June 10, 2007) was a Cincinnati-based American Modernist artist, best known for his highly stylized wildlife prints, posters and book illustrations.
In a style he called "minimal realism", Charley Harper captures the essence of his subjects with the fewest possible visual elements. The results are bold, colorful, and often whimsical. The designer Todd Oldham writes of Harper, "Charley's inspired yet accurate color sense is undeniable, and when combined with the precision he exacts on rendering only the most important details, one is always left with a sense of awe."
