Ted Harrison

  • Biography

    Ted Harrison was a British-Canadian painter noted for his colorful landscape paintings of the Yukon. Born on August 28, 1926 in Wingate, England, he studied at the West Hartlepool School of Art, where he later taught for three decades. His career took off when he relocated from England to Northern Canada in 1967. After arriving in Canada, he was deeply inspired by the rustic landscapes of his surroundings. His works are characterized by their almost psychedelic color palettes, in which the sun and mountains are given mystical credence. Harrison's painting Alone in the Great North, featuring a purple sun setting in an orange sky, is exemplary of his style. Also a celebrated children’s book illustrator, Harrison was selected for the International Children’s Book Exhibition in Bologna, Italy. In 1987, the artist was inducted as a Member of the Order of Canada for his contributions to Canadian culture, and later invited into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. Harrison died at the age of 88 on January 16, 2015 in Victoria, Canada.
