Many of his illustrations are of wildlife and in particular birds. He created a style he described as ‘minimal realism’, abstracting nature to beautiful but basic shapes and form.

I just came across these fantastic images of illustrator Charley Harper in his Cincinnati home/studio. They were taken by designer, printmaker and journalist Harmen Liemburg when he visited Harper in 2006.
Harper's illustration style was clean and minimal. His work can easily be recognised by the simplistic forms of nature and wildlife, so I was absolutely shocked when I saw how packed and untidy his studio was!
