Harris Jr., Ernest

Painting • Sculpture • Graphic Arts • Photography • St. Catharines

Ernest Harris Jr. was born in Grenada in 1971 and raised in Canada.

His reputation as a gifted but lazy painter blossomed in the early nineties at Brock University where he received a Visual Arts BA almost in spite of himself.

Over the years his art has snuck its way into popular media by way of music videos, opening credits and commercials.

Be it paintings, comics, sculptures or photographs, Harris hot-wires pop culture imagery to reveal paradoxes, disconnects, and resonances embedded in social constructs and cultural assumptions.

Shown here are selections from:

  • Race Towards Something (2008)
  • Virtues (2006)
  • Bliss (2011)

Ernest lives and works in St. Catharines, ON.
