He took images of nature and broke them down to their simplest forms and used bright colors to make eye appealing compositions. He did many commissions and his work can be seen in international collections.
Many Cincinnati homes feature his work on their walls. Children and adults are drawn to Charley Harper's work. He passed away in 2007. His original paintings, posters, glicees and lithographs are available here.
