Charlie Harper

Charley Harper (August 4, 1922-June 10, 2007) was a Cincinnati-based American Modernist artist. He was 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. See more of his artwork here.

Designer Todd Oldham produced a book of Charlie Harper's illustrations call Illustrated Life. This book is on my list of must haves, see it here.
