Canadian Portrait and Landscape Artist
Over the past 25 years Tony Harris' body of work as a professional sports portrait and landscape artist has established him one the most sought after talents internationally.
Tony has commissions with the NHL, NHLPA, PGA, LPGA, CFL and many elite sport agencies. He is under contract with the NHL Players Association to paint the Ted Lindsay Award recipient (League MVP as voted by the players). Tony is also the official artist of the RBC Canadian Open.
Tony's touch with the brush, but more so with people has landed him numerous commissions of high-profile personalities and executive business leaders. His works hang in a variety of private collections of professional athletes and corporate executives throughout the world.
"My goal as an artist is to capture the true personality of my subject. I played OHL hockey as a goalie and was a QB for Bishop's University and on some level, I think I have brought that competitiveness to my painting. I love the challenge of creating a lifelike image. I want the work to look as if the subject could literally step off the canvas at any moment and engage the viewer."- Tony Harris
