ARTIST PROFILE

 

Part painter/part performer, and prominent artist in the New Orleans art scene; Harvie paints live all over the US, while simultaneously showing his ongoing series ''MUSH'' in exhibitions across Louisiana. Harvie began painting 'live at events' in 2006 and since his fine arts degree at LSU in 2005, his portfolio has grown to over 800 paintings. Harvie also collaborates regularly with other artists. His recent 130ft BR Walls Mural collaboration with TJ Black is by far most noteworthy.

Currently, Harvie is painting live every weekend somewhere... He will paint anything from a wedding or concert, to horse races, music festivals, balls, fundraisers, and fashion shows.  During the week Harvie works on adding to his massive catalogue of studio works which can be seen in over 20 galleries and venues in Louisiana. He is pleased to have work in the public collections at the LSUMOA and The Federal City Auditorium and of course, in the homes of multiple private collectors throughout America and Europe. He participates in select shows like Stabbed in the Art, Art Melt, RAW:Artists and Art for Arts-Sake.  Recently, Harvie was filmed for TLC's ''Four Weddings'' and received national recognition for his Live Wedding Paintings. All throughout Mardi Gras Harvie paints live at parades and parties. He painted Flow Tribe on the Gentilly Stage during Jazz Fest and at Wakarusa 2013. He donates multiple paintings a year to fundraisers and charities such as LPB, March of Dimes, Special Connections, ACF, and Battle Against Autism to name a few. All this hard work has been honored with several publications about Harvie, who was acclaimed in Country Roads Magazine for People's Choice at the 2011 Art Melt.

Alex Harvie walks the fine line between realism and abstraction. Living his life like his art; he thrives to combine his love for nature and people into a harmonious blend of living the moment and accidental learning. His series ''MUSH'' uses an impasto technique combing elements of impressionism, cubism and surrealism- a style said to be ''Harvie and Harvie alone.''
