brett f. harvey

REPRESENTED ARTIST
Harvey conveys concepts of masculinity and beauty presented in a dichotomy of intimidating physicality and pensive vulnerability, upending historical tropes, speaking to the inner emotions and experiences conflicting and encompassing all humanity.
A dominant principle in Harvey’s work is the origin of his informed technique and skill tracing back to the history of Greek sculpture, defined by his studies under world-renowned sculptors at the New York Academy of Art.
Brett is a graduate of the New York Academy of Art, the New Hampshire Institute and studied at the Florence School of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy. Brett was lead fabricator and installer for Jeff Koons before relocating to Naples, FL.
